Peace Halifax is a one-day festival organized as a gift to the people of Halifax in honour of the United Nations international Day of Peace. The first annual Peace Halifax Ambassador of Peace Award to Dr. Robert Strang in recognition of the care, compassion and clarity that you have provided to Nova Scotians throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dr. Strang, during a time of unprecedented uncertainty and chaos you’ve been the calm at the centre of the storm. In the face of anxiety and worry you’ve been the voice of reason and kindness. Your focus on the science calmed our minds, but it’s your principles and your commitment to truth that spoke to our hearts. You’ve brought peace of mind and a sense of purpose to so many during this challenging time and we are honoured to recognize you with this award.
Halifax Mayor Mike Savage presented the award to Dr. Strang. View the event here.
