Ontario Lt.-Gov. Elizabeth Dowdeswell took an extended tour of Carleton University and delivered a keynote speech at a holiday reception on Saturday, Dec. 2, 2017.
During her visit, Dowdeswell met with Carleton President Alastair Summerlee, as well as Indigenous faculty, staff and students at the Ojigkwanong Centre. She then headed to the MacOdrum Library, where she held meetings on accessibility issues before joining student government leaders for a chat.
Later, Dowdeswell spoke to a reception of 350 people, including members of the diplomatic community and others celebrating the Ontario 150 Awards given out by Attorney General Yasir Naqvi.
“In a year focused on celebrating our province and country, I wanted to honour local residents who embody the qualities and values that make Ottawa, Ontario and Canada great,” said Naqvi in a release. “I was proud to recognize 50 women, 50 men and 50 youth with the #OC150 Award. These dedicated volunteers have committed their time and talent to our community.”
