Sidney has led CACP with obvious passion and vision. He has been a visionary, and a steady and reasonable chair under which CACP has benefited and grown…”

 

In his acceptance speech, Sidney noted that the award was the result of the dedication of many people in the room from differing points of view, who he has had the honour, and delight of working with over the last decade. 


In special recognition for the award, Carey Larose, retired CACP member, retired Chief Plumbing & Gas Administrator, Alberta Municipal Affairs & Safety Services and the 2006 JKS Award winner sent a note of congratulation:
