David Sealy was a brilliant man with a wondrous way with words.  Born in Trinidad, he arrived in Canada as a boy of eleven, and pursued a rich and wide-ranging path through the hallways of academia.  His influence on his fellow scholars and students was immeasurable... and imparted through the spoken word, in the rich tradition of stump speakers and Socratic riffs. David Sealy's life was a celebration of ideas, pursued with dogged delight.

Born in a tent on the Sioux Valley Dakota Nation in Manitoba, Gladys Evelyn Cook would become one of the first voices to speak out about the abuses in Canada's residential schools. In later years she would also be one of the few who would forgive her attacker during an emotional reunion at the Elkhorn Residential School. Gladys was able to move past her own difficult history to become a caring drug and alcohol counsellor, and mentor. She was also instrumental in changing the corrections system in Manitoba to include awareness of aboriginal culture for offenders and staff. A woman of great courage and forgiveness.
