Heather Mallick accepts Humanist Of The Year Award, 2012

 Tanya Long, Programme Directory, presented the Humanist of the Year award for 2012 to Toronto Star journalist, and author, Heather Mallick, at OISE on Sept 15.
Heather was most gracious and held a lively conversation with members and guests, about her experiences as a journalist.  We discussed Humanist values, secularism, separation of government and religion in public life, and also the intersection of politics and religion, locally, federally, and internationally.   We all thank Heather for her generosity and humour - and also for her voice in the public forum - upholding reason, science, ethical behaviour and human compassion.  - Mary
