Interacting with those younger than I (and that now includes nearly everyone) has always been a particular interest. When I served on the Selection Committee for the University of Toronto Arbour Scholars, I was almost embarrassed to be judging the merits of those who were in their late teens or early twenties who are already brighter and better educated than I.
To try to stay in touch I was active with Carleton University while in Ottawa. Specifically I was Chair of the Associates of Carleton (the founding group of the University), Chair of their first Capital Campaign, a Director of the newly formed Norman Patterson School for International Affairs and finally Chair of their Board, 1997-99.
When in Vancouver I was on the Advisory Committee of the School of Business at the University of British Columbia and also Chair of the Finance Committee of the Board at Simon Fraser University.
I have been involved with Trinity College at the University of Toronto, largely in a fund raising capacity and chaired their Spirit of Leadership Campaign in 1996-99.
