SIGNALS was proud to host its fifteenth annual                                                                             banquet on January 27th, 2017.

The night was full of great food, drinks        and lively conversation. Speaker Julie Gelfand,  Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development, partook in an engaging discussion with Professor Glen Toner on the continual need for independent review of government’s management of environmental and sustainable development issues. Her role within the Office of the Auditor General of Canada enables her to conduct such reviews independently and make recommendations.
