St. Leonard’s Windsor 50 years of building a safer community by changing people’s lives

Sunday December 4 2011

St. Leonard’s Windsor is celebrating 50 years of building a safer community by changing
people’s lives.

In honour of the pioneers of the halfway house movement in Canada, St. Leonard’s is featuring a true Canadian hero of human rights. A true hero and an outspoken leader for the 21st century, and a decorated Lieutenant General, Dallaire served 35 years with the Canadian Armed Forces.

His best-selling book, Shake Hands With the Devil, exposes the failures of the international community to stop the worst genocide in the 20th century.

Dallaire’s presentations discuss leadership and conflict resolution, illustrated with stories of his own experiences. He inspires listeners to address the ethical and moral issues in conflicts and insists that governments put humanity above political and economic interests.
