Lieutenant-General, the Honourable Roméo Dallaire (Ret'd) to speak in Bathurst

The Bathurst Rotary Club have teamed up with Bathurst High School to welcome Lieutenant-General, the Honourable Roméo Dallaire (Ret'd) to Bathurst on Nov. 2.

By standing up for the rights of those he was working with, and trying to protect, Dallaire is considered a hero by the international community at large. He has faced battle and peacekeeping and returned home to boldly share his story, inspiring others to be vocal about what they believe in.

His humanitarian commitment, honesty, and integrity have made a lasting imprint around the world. A decorated Lieutenant General and former Canadian Senator, Dallaire served 35 years with the Canadian Armed Forces, was Force Commander of the United Nations Assistance Mission in Rwanda, is the bestselling author of three books, and leads the Child Soldiers Initiative.

A passionate and moving speaker, Dallaire inspires audiences to challenge the status quo and take action in shaping a new future. His candid presentations weave together complex ideas in a way that is fully accessible. A kind, thoughtful and generous man, Dallaire has the unique ability to make each audience member take pride in the leadership they show in what they do. He is able to take a positive approach on seemingly difficult subject matter by focusing on the solutions, rather than the problems. Dallaire’s words will echo in the hearts and minds of audiences long after an event concludes.

The public is invited to hear Dallaire speak in the Gwendolyn Kent Auditorium at Bathurst High School on Friday, Nov. 2 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are just $20 each and are available from members of the Bathurst Rotary Club, and at the following locations: Bathurst High School, Tower’s Jewelers, Kent and White Insurance, the Atlantic Host and Lounsbury Automotive Ltd. Bathurst.

Proceeds from this event will be used to support both Rotary Initiatives and Bathurst High School student activities.
