    Andre Rudnicky

    – MBA’90

    Spring 2020

    I retired from the City of Toronto a year ago, where I was an engineer in transportation asset management for 20 years. Prior to that, I was at the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario for 10 years. After retiring, I moved to Montreal and am living in the neighbourhood I grew up in. These days, I’m mostly repairing and painting at the cottage and bought a new car. In general, I am doing that which was not possible when there was no time because I was working full time.

Jones completed his doctorate in international political economy in the department of Political Studies under the supervision of Charles Pentland and went on to teach at Loyalist and St. Lawrence Colleges before returning to full-time research and policy analysis at the Centre for Health Services and Policy Research and the Centre for Studies in Primary Care. He later headed two NGOs: the John Howard Society of Canada, during the rollout of the Harper crime agenda, and the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, during the run-up to cannabis legalization. With co-author Josephine Matyas, Jones toured and researched across the Mississippi Delta to produce a traveller’s guide to the headwaters of one of America’s truly distinct contributions to world culture: the blues.

    Neil Pritchard

    – Meds’87

    Spring 2022

    After a 32-year career in the Canadian Forces and a three-year stint as the chief of staff at Campbellford Memorial Hospital, I have retired from the practice of medicine to spend time on my 18-acre estate near Stirling, Ont. There, with my wife Nancy and my stepdaughter Kristin, I lounge by the pool, maintain my grounds, target shoot, and enjoy my vinyl record collection. P.S. I still have that 1973 MGB!
