The speaker presents the year's Empire Club Community Service Award. Personal reminiscences from the last year. A focus on Ontario Society in three particular areas: anti-racism, mental health, and support for Aboriginal youth. The speaker talks about each of these and efforts and progress being made. The speaker relates his own efforts in these areas, and how they relate to personal experiences in his life. Looking for support from the members of the Empire Club. A wish for the very best of the season. The Empire club was then entertained by the Toronto Mendelssohn Youth Choir.
