FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE | January 24, 2018

Dufferin ON: The Dufferin Board of Trade is pleased to announce Steve Paikin, host of TVO’s The Agenda with Steve Paikin, as the 2018 Industry Luncheon Keynote Speaker.

Paikin will be connecting with our local business community and discussing themes from his newest book Bill Davis, Nation Builder and Not So Bland After All. In his book, Paikin documents the life and work of Ontario’s 18th premier, Bill Davis. Commonly referred to as a modern-day Father of Confederation, Davis is known for his influential work on the community college system, TVOntario and the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE). As Ontario’s second-longest-serving premier, Davis was instrumental in amending the Canadian Constitution with an accompanying Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

“A highly respected journalist, author, and producer, we are absolutely thrilled to welcome Steve Paikin as this year’s keynote speaker” said Henry Jansen, Chair of the Industry Luncheon Committee. “Mr. Paikin has a storied career and wealth of knowledge and experience that we know will make for an engaging and informative presentation”.

The 2018 Industry Luncheon is hosted in partnership by the Rotary Club of Orangeville, Greater Dufferin Home Builders Association and the Dufferin Board of Trade. Each year the luncheon brings together the Dufferin business community for an afternoon of networking and professional development.
