Symons Medal Presentation 2019 Now Available Online

Senator Murray Sinclair Received the 19th Symons Medal on November 1, 2019

thumbnail_image005.jpg 

Last month at Confederation Centre of the Arts, Canadian Senator, the Honourable Murray Sinclair received the 2019 Symons Medal for exceptional contribution to Canadian life.

Before a full house in the Homburg Theatre and webcast live across the country, Senator Sinclair received the medal and delivered his thoughtful lecture Confederation: We Could Have Done Better. Now, the medal presentation and lecture is available online in its entirety.

The presentation includes: an opening performance from the Confederation Centre Youth Chorus; words of welcome from the Honourable Premier of Prince Edward Island, Dennis King; response from fellow Senator, the Honourable Brian Francis, also from P.E.I.; and a Q+A segment with the audience. YouTube links to the archived video are available in English and French.

Senator Sinclair served the justice system in Manitoba for over 25 years and was the second Indigenous Judge to be appointed in Canada and the first Indigenous Judge in Manitoba. He also served as Chief Commissioner of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) in Canada. As Chair of the TRC, he participated in hundreds of hearings across Canada, culminating in the issuance of the TRC’s report in 2015.

Senator Sinclair was the 19th recipient of the Symons Medal. Since 2004, the Centre has honoured 18 others, including: Prime Minister of Canada, the Right Honourable Justin Trudeau; His Royal Highness Prince Charles, Prince of Wales; historian Margaret MacMillan; human rights activist Stephen Lewis; the Right Honourable Beverley McLachlin, P.C., Chief Justice of Canada; and the President of the national Inuit organization, Mary Simon.

The Symons Medal and Lecture Series is named in honour of Professor Thomas H.B. Symons, a long-time supporter of Confederation Centre and a Board Governor. Professor Symons, the founding President of Trent University, is widely recognized for his work in the field of Canadian Studies, particularly within public policy, heritage, and education.
