Julie Ali Congratulations to all the award winners and most especially to Mr. Lee who is doing work that hardly any lawyer in Alberta is doing. It takes courage to tilt against the system for the most vulnerable and defenceless citizens in Alberta.

I am pretty fried.
For someone who does an Emily Dickinson whenever she can, it was a social week or so.
The JHC Awards ceremony was a blast. I loved it. And to see Ruth Adria get the award was just the best.

10TH ANNUAL HUMAN RIGHTS AWARDS: AN EVENT THAT RECOGNIZES LOCAL HUMAN RIGHTS HEROES
December 5, 2016
Edmonton, December 1, 2016 − The John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights invites the media to join them for their 10th Annual Human Rights Awards and the launch of Ignite Change 2017: A Global Gathering for Human Rights on December 11th, 2016, from 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM at the ATB Financial Arts Barn (10330 84 Ave NW).
Held in commemoration of International Human Rights Day, these awards are meant to recognize those in our community who are actively promoting, fulfilling, protecting or educating on human rights, and making our communities a place where all belong, are included and able to participate. Chief Commissioner Marie-Claude of the Canadian Human Rights Commission. Mdm. Marie-Claude Landry, Ad.E. will be the event’s guest and keynote speaker.
Every year awards are given out to recipients, who are local human rights champions who are building Edmonton as a human rights city. This year however we will be awarding our first winner from outside of Edmonton in our efforts to recognize Albertans making an impact. This is followed by the Gerald L. Gall Award for an individual who has made an outstanding contribution and has demonstrated excellence in the protection and promotion of human rights in Canada.
Renée Laporte, a Human Rights Champion recipient in 2015, explains what the award means to her, “When you are an advocate, you face stigma and discrimination. You feel the hate marginalized communities face, and that drives you to work harder to see them have their rights upheld.” She was recognised for her work of over a decade as an educational assistant, inclusion innovator and pioneer in fostering high risk young women.
This year’s awards recipients are
Robert P. Lee
Gerald L. Gall Award 2016
Paula Kirman
Human Rights Champion 2016
Ruth Adria
Human Rights Champion 2016
Kristina De Guzman
Human Rights Champion 2016
Roy Pogorzelski
Human Rights Champion 2016

I went to the Glenrose Hospital on Wednesday with mum and then to Dr. Krysa today.
My most frequent contacts are with doctors.
Right now I am waiting for older boy to get home. It's late and soon he will be eating his grandpa's shrimp curry and rice. Of course I have nothing to offer him but grandpa cooked yesterday after doing a whole day at the clinic.
Family is a lot of work.
Who ever thought I would be up to my eyeballs in so much love?
