CPA Ontario was presented with TVO's Caring Corporate Partner Award at a
gala on November 6 in honour of TVO's founder, Bill Davis. The gala was
a tribute to Mr. Davis for his pioneering vision in establishing

Fermenting Cellar, Distillery District in Toronto, and was hosted by
TVO's Steve Paikin.
