Dr. Duncan Webster receives the 2022 YMCA Peace Medal
Saint John, NB — From November 12-19, during YMCA Peace Week, the YMCA of Greater Saint John, together with YMCAs across Canada, is celebrating the presence of peace in our communities and reflecting on the peace-building work that happens all year both inside and outside the YMCA.
During YMCA Peace Week, we honour those at the forefront of these peace-building efforts and encourage Canadians to ask themselves how they can bring change to their communities.
A special highlight of this week is the presentation of the YMCA Peace Medal to an individual or group who, without any special resources, demonstrates a commitment to peace through individual contributions made within their local, national, or global community. This year’s ceremony, held on November 16, 2022, honours Dr. Duncan Webster for his significant contributions towards peace-building and going above and beyond in assisting Newcomers To Canada.
