Terry Collins is deeply grateful to the Royal Canadian Institute for Science for awarding him the Fleming Medal for Excellence in Science Communication, which was announced on Oct. 30. For Terry, the Fleming Medal is the honour of a lifetime and humbling, given the list of past recipients but also because of the award's famous namesake, Sir Sandford Fleming, the Institute's founder, the father of standard time and Queen's long-serving second chancellor.
He would like to thank RCIScience and the hundreds of scientists and media colleagues with whom he has had the honour to work with over his career. He would also like to congratulate
CBC's “Quirks and Quarks” on winning the RCIScience William Edmond Logan award.
