Kate Andrus : The Dr. Victor Cecilioni Award – 2015

A posthumous award honours the contributions of Kate Andrus, who started a grass-roots campaign called “Trash the Garbage Plant” protesting the Port Fuels Project in Hamilton Harbour. Due to her hard work, dedicated research and leadership skills, she exposed the potential environmental dangers of the proposed gasification plant. Kate’s life was dedicated to the preservation of the environment and to inspiring those around her to do the same.
