Renowned General coming to Bruce County in support of Museum

The Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre (BCM&CC) is excited to bring Lt. General Romeo Dallaire (Ret), an exceptional and internationally renowned speaker and leadership expert, to Bruce County this October.

General Dallaire’s positive approach to world affairs and problem solving will echo in the hearts and minds of audience members long after this inspiring event ends.

A distinguished and decorated member of the Canadian Forces, internationally celebrated
humanitarian, award-winning author and former Canadian Senator, General Dallaire is
lauded for his exemplary leadership, most notably as force commander of the UN mission
during the Rwandan genocide 25 years ago.

His courage and leadership during that mission and his decades-long battle with PTSD have earned him international respect and commendation which continue to this day.

General Dallaire embodies brave ethical leadership and his motivational words inspire audiences to challenge the status quo and to be passionate about their work, community and the world we live in. He inspires with practical solutions and limitless hope.

General Dallaire has written several books, the first of which – Governor General award winner Shake Hands with the Devil – inspired the award-winning and Oscar-nominated movie Hotel Rwanda, starring Don Cheadle.

Today, General Dallaire is a highly sought-after speaker, who dedicates time to the Child Soldiers Initiative, a global partnership he founded in 2007 with a vision to see a world where children are no longer recruited and used as weapons of war.

Proudly presented by Unifor Family Education Centre, tickets are $75 and are now on sale for
the Thursday, October 10th event.

Funds raised from this event will be dedicated to the BCM&CC’s new Archives.  Tickets can be purchased at the Museum, or by calling 519-797-2080. 

Join the Museum for this memorable evening on Thursday, October 10th at 7:00 p.m. that will be held at the Unifor Family Education Centre located at 115 Shipley Ave in Port Elgin.
