TORONTO, Nov. 13 /CNW/ - Former Ontario Chief Justice, Roy McMurtry, will
receive the Outstanding Contribution to Education Award this week from the
Ontario Principals' Council. During his term as Chief Justice, Mr. McMurtry
established the Ontario Justice Education Network (OJEN), to bring together
the education and legal communities. McMurtry's goal was to provide a better
understanding to students about the role and importance of the justice system
and to reach out to youth who felt alienated from the legal system.
The Ontario Principals' Council (OPC) is the voluntary professional
association representing 5,000 principals and vice-principals in Ontario's
public elementary and secondary schools. Established in 1998, OPC advocates on
behalf of public education and provides professional supports to its Members.
