BIG NEWS NEW CLASS OF HOF INDUCTEES


Created by the Canadian Foun- dation for Physically Disabled Persons, the Canadian Disability Hall of Fame welcomed its new class of inductees this year in recognizing outstanding individu- als who have made extraordinary contributions to enriching the quality of life for people with physical disabilities. Celebrated personal injury law- yer and King Clancy Award winner Bernard Gluckstein (below) was inducted in the Achiever category. Gluckstein has worked tirelessly to advance the causes of the dis-


ability community, particularly for those with acquired brain injury and those with spinal cord injury. His love of photography has taken him to numerous Paralympic Games as an accredited photog- rapher in support of the Paralym- pic Movement. The CBC’s Rick Mercer also entered the Hall as an Achiever. Arguably Canada’s best-loved political satirist, Mercer has made it his special mission to promote Paralympic athletes and bring the abilities of para-athletes to Canadi- ans’ attention.


Top-ranked para-equestrian Lauren Barwick joins the company of other Paralympians in the Hall. Barwick has represented Canada at the international level for more than 12 years, and has won more medals at major games than any other Canadian athlete... includ- ing gold at the 2008 Paralympics in Beijing. She goes into the Hall as a Builder however, recognizing all she gives back to the sport as well, giving clinics, attending fundraisers, and tirelessly train- ing youth as an accredited and accomplished instructor.
