Bob Dell

Bob Dell’s dedication to clean water is having a global impact. After a 30-year career as a water scientist at his own Dell Tech Laboratories, Bob Dell visited Uganda in 2004 with global charity Compassion Canada and saw firsthand the impact that waterborne illnesses were having on the nation. He realized the answer to this problem was potentially so simple that it had been hidden in plain sight for years. The biggest roadblock was a lack of education. Since then, he has dedicated himself to ensuring that children around the world are educated about [...]

Cathie Brown

For Cathie Brown, engagement means more than just having an opinion.

This group of unlikely conversation partners comprises the exact sort of people Kun is interested in bringing together for thoughtful dialogue on Canada’s water issues—in fact, she’s facilitated these and many other discussions [...]

Tim Morris

The Gordon Foundation’s Tim Morris brings a fresh energy to politics and policy. Sometimes, it pays to listen to your professors. That’s certainly been the case for Tim Morris, the manager of the Walter and Duncan Gordon Foundation’s Fresh Water Resources Protection Program. After all, it was a professor’s suggestion that he read Marq de Villiers’ Water: The Fate of Our Most Precious Resource that set him on the path that he’s on today. At the time, Morris was working towards a Master of Laws degree at the University of British Columbia. He [...]
