Council for Canadian American Relations (CCAR) Gala 2017

Ccar2017-1

Former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney

Two weeks ago I attended the gala with my husband Stanley, who is the Secretary of the organization, at the Metropolitan Club.  This event marked Canada’s 150th anniversary of confederation.  Honorees were the American artist Frank Stella, filmmaker Norman Jewison (originally from Canada), and Hilary Weston, a Canadian businesswoman and former Lieutenant Governor of Ontario.  Former Prime Minister of Canada Brian Mulroney also spoke and was quite entertaining.  CCAR is an organization whose purpose is to foster and encourage awareness, understanding and appreciation between the peoples of Canada and the United States through the arts.

The Hon. Hilary Weston

We were seated at a table of Americans and Canadians, and had lots of interesting conversation.
