Event description

Description

Freedom is a foundational Canadian principle, which George Jonas (1935-2016) promoted throughout his life, both before and after coming to Canada from communist Hungary. A renowned Canadian author, poet and columnist, George Jonas made freedom a consistent and important theme in all of his writings. The annual George Jonas Freedom Award recognizes and honours one individual each year who has contributed significantly to advancing and preserving freedom in Canada.

The George Jonas Freedom Award will be presented to Christie Blatchford on Friday June 14, 2019 at the Eglinton Grand in Toronto. This wonderful evening includes a reception, dinner, the award presentation, and a keynote speech from Ms. Blatchford.

Christie Blatchford is a well-known Canadian journalist, columnist, and author. Ms. Blatchford’s candid but uncompromising writings have earned her a well-deserved reputation as a courageous, fair and objective reporter. Ms. Blatchford has become known for speaking truth to power, and is sensitive to the core Canadian principles of individual liberty and the rule of law. Risking injury to career and reputation, and refusing to be intimidated, she has faced cultural forces and bureaucratic tendencies with steadfast conviction that the light of truth must always prevail.

The second annual George Jonas Freedom Award Dinner returns to the Eglinton Grand, 400 Eglinton Avenue West, Toronto. A reception commences at 5:30 p.m., with the dinner and award ceremony beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Take advantage of Early Bird Pricing until May 1st, 2019!
