Dedication Ceremony of the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute

18 October 2011

Dr. Howard, Members of the Board of St Michael’s, distinguished faculty, students and guests, ladies and gentlemen,

Good afternoon. I am so excited to be here today. I remember it was six years ago when my friend Mr. John Hunkin and my dear, late friend Mr. Don Fullerton asked me to consider supporting an expansion proposal for St. Michael’s. When our team completed their review, their 3-page report was simply titled: “St. Michael’s is good!” In it they wrote, “St Michael’s is affectionately referred as the urban angel of Toronto”.
