Heart and Vision - The Toronto United Church Council

www.tucc.ca, $reference.date [cached]

The Honourable David McDonald David is presented with the Heart & Vision award for his bold work in social justice both overseas and in Canada. Never a follower, when he started his fi rst job as a United Church minister in Alberton, PEI in 1962, he shocked everybody by teaming up with the local priest to tackle local social issues - and this boldness of style has been a characteristic of his life. In 1965 he was elected to parliament as a Progressive Conservative. He was the only MP to vote against the War Measures Act in November 1970. In the 1980s, he educated himself about the African famine, and persuaded Prime Minister Brian Mulroney to send him as emergency famine co-ordinator and later Ambassador to Ethiopia, Sudan and Djibouti. His presence made a difference! David understands that in the resolution of problems, forward movement requires participation from all sides. He is the consummate bridge-builder. Since 1998, he has been a special advisor to the United Church of Canada on Residential Schools. David's commitment to the environment was first evident when he became chair of Canada's first parliamentary committee on the environment in 1979. He remains a leader on the environment, leading a multi-sector response to the crisis of the global ocean. As a parliamentarian, diplomat, preacher, environmentalist, famine relief coordinator and social justice advocate David has given to his work boundless energy and creative leadership.
