A Tribute to Bill Davis: A True Visionary

I recently had the pleasure of celebrating TVO’s visionary founder at the
wonderful event, A Tribute to Bill Davis.It was a remarkable evening
honouring Mr. Bill Davis’ legacy and his outstanding contribution to
Ontario, and to TVO. Mr. Davis delighted the crowd with his keen
observations, bon mots and stories from his days in office. Premier Wynne,
Mr. Tim Hudak and Ms. Andrea Horwath also shared tributes to Mr. Davis as
they recognized his unwavering commitment to serving the province and the
country.Few people have left such an indelible mark on the fabric of life
in Ontario as Hon. William G. “Bill” Davis. He is responsible for shaping
much of what makes us proud to be Ontarians. One of his most important
contributions was overseeing a transformation of our public education
system. Mr. Davis’ legacy has an impact on people of all ages—it is because
of him that millions of Ontarians have more opportunities to achieve their
goals in life thanks to the power of education.Special thanks go to the
evening’s presenting sponsor, Chartered Professional Accountants of
Ontario, who were also honoured as the 2014 recipient of the TVO Caring
Corporate Partner Award and to John Tory and the Organizing Committee for
creating such a wonderful event. Our journalism depends on you.You can
count on TVO to cover the stories others don’t—to fill the gaps in the
ever-changing media landscape. But we can’t do this without you.Donate Here
