It’s hard to believe that today (April 1) is the first anniversary of Robert Pierre Tomas’ death. He was a dedicated activist and fundraiser and such a vibrant, loving and generous presence.
It seems a fitting tribute to launch a scholarship for post-secondary study/training in his honour. The award will be given to a gay or lesbian student who is a new Canadian (just as Robert was when he arrived here in 1986).
The scholarship will be offered by the Canadian Safe School Network – you can learn more and donate here.
