Photos of the presentation at the YMCA-YWCA AGM and Peace Medal presentation. Dr. George Johnson was one of two exceptional winners of the Y 2018 Peace Medal. He joins a long list of Peace Medal recipients across Canada in over 27 years of YMCA-YWCA medals presented. George gave an inspiring speech in which he spoke of his career as a social activist in peace and social justice, shared the real life stories behind some of his literary works and offered a Blue Dot petition for the audience to sign! Congratulations George.
