Special Event to Honour David Phillips on Receiving the Order of Canada

Downsview, 25 January 2002


In 2024, three rolls of colour film of the Downsview event celebrating David's Order of Canada received in 2001 were found.  

Most photos were taken by Farhad Fanian


About 80 photos were scanned and below we see the best choices from these films.  Photos are arranged in the general order that events occurred according to the schedule below.  Phil Chadwick researched and prepared an extensive personal slide show (more suitable for a retirement event) commemorating David's early career, family early education, etc.  Only three photos (#s 8, 9 and 10 from his research were displayed and photographed in the auditorium.

The event took place in two parts: a formal celebration in the Downsview auditorium; followed by a reception in the ADM's boardroom.

Many people attended and are seen in the photos.

Identifications can be made according to photo number. Starting below at Photo 0 (the agenda); and then proceeding downward from Photo 1 to Photo 33.  You can find the photo numbers from the URL you are  looking at or by row and number from the top.  Always left to right.

This collage has been made to commemorate David's (who had not yet retired) award of the Order of Canada.
