As reported by the Guardian, long-time Council of Canadians activist and former Board member Leo Broderick “often gets up on a soap box, but never tries to put himself on a pedestal.”
Broderick was one of three inductees into the Order of Prince Edward Island. He accepted his award at a ceremony earlier this week.
He was described as “a man outspoken and well-informed on social justice and environmental concerns but one also respectful of the opinions of others.”
Broderick, a former teacher, told The Guardian he was “shocked’’ when he first learned he was selected this year as a member of the Order of P.E.I., which puts his name on a list that includes pioneer doctors, renowned entrepreneurs and heralded former political leaders.
