Canada’s 17th Prime Minister will be in Niagara-on-the-Lake on Sept. 24 to help launch the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority’s (NPCA) inaugural Rt. Hon. John Turner Water & Environmental Leadership Award.
The award will be handed out annually to an individual, group or business who has demonstrated leadership in promoting or improving water and the environment within the NPCA’s watershed.
Net proceeds from the evening will support the work of the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority through its Foundation, as well as establish the Rt. Hon. John Turner Environmental Scholarship.
The scholarship will be awarded to a student entering their second year of environmental study at Brock University with exceptional academic standing.
Mr. Turner has long been an outspoken advocate for good conservation practices, water resources, and wildlife issues.
