May I share with your readers the outstanding success of another son of Saligao, Dr Colin Saldanha, son of Alex and Ophelia Saldanha of Karachi, originally from Ararim, Saligao.

The Mississauga Real Estate Board and The Mississauga News hosted the 2010 Civic Awards Reception at the Civic Centre today. (Dr. Colin Saldanha, 2010 Mississauga Citizen of the Year with his family, from left, sons Jason and Warren, wife Sheila and daughter Diane.)
Four citizens who epitomize the spirit of community service and volunteerism were feted today at the 2010 Civic Awards reception at City Hall. The annual awards are presented by the Mississauga Real Estate Board and The Mississauga News.
Dr. Colin Saldanha received the Gordon S. Shipp Memorial Award as Mississauga's Citizen of the Year.
A general practitioner, Saldanha, 56, immigrated from Pakistan in 1981 and has run a busy medical practice for the last 20 years. He has become the leader of almost every organization he has been involved with, including The Peel Multicultural Council, the Police Services Board, Safe and Sober Driving Coalition, Mississauga Board of Trade and the United Way of Peel. Saldanha says he was overwhelmed when he heard he had been chosen for the award, named in honour of the late senior member of the Shipp clan and one of Mississauga's building pioneers. "As an immigrant to this country, there's not enough ways to say 'thank you,' and I find the (volunteer) work very rewarding," he said. "When people ask me why I do the things I do, I say I think it's my deep Christian faith to give back, my upbringing and my sense of gratitude to Canada." jchin@mississauga.net"
Dr Colin Saldanha was also the winner of the Top 25 Canadian Immigrant Award 2009. Despite being a very busy medical practitioner he makes the time to serve societal needs. Dr. Saldanha's community involvement includes serving as Vice Chair of the United Way of Peel and Chair of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce Health Policy Committee and the Mississauga Board of Trade. Previously he served as President of the Peel Multicultural Council, Vice Chair of the Peel Police Services Board, Vice President and President of the Canadian Association of Police Board, and President and Chair of the Mississauga Board of Trade. The list goes on and on - thanks to Dr Saldanha's amazing commitment to community, country, church and family.
We are "Proud out Loud" of the many fine contributions to society made by Dr Colin Saldanha, a son of Saligao, to the fabric of Canada - a great country we lovingly now call home.
