June Callwood, Canadian Hero

Regretfully, she passed away yesterday at the age of 82. I was amazed on how many charities and social organizations that she founded or co-founded. The number is over 50. This includes Casey hospice in Toronto for AIDs, Nellie's Hostel For Women and Jessie's Centre For Teenagers.

She has also written 30 books on different subjects and recently was inducted as a "Companion Of The Order Of Canada." She was on speaking terms with most Prime Ministers, Ontario Premiers and Toronto Mayors over the last 30 years. Of course, this is necessary if you have your hand in over 50 social action organizations.

June espoused those values that many Canadians aspire too like caring for children, teenagers, AIDs victims, and the underpriviledged in Canadian society. Some have even dubbed her St. June.

Other countries may have military leaders and politicians as role models, but Canadians look up to those who give a helping hand.

Premier, Tommy Douglas was another hero who started public health care in Saskatchewan in 1944. That lead to our present heath care system in every province.
