President’s Perspective - George Smith Retires

From Issue: 
Vol LV No. 2, April 2011

After 22 years of dedicated work at the Canada Safety Council, George Smith, Manager, Traffic Safety and Training, is retiring. George joined CSC in March 1989, and throughout the years he has trained thousands of students and instructors. From the ATV Rider Course, to the Defensive Driving Course, to 55 Alive Driver Refresher Course, George has logged many training hours as well as many kilometres. He has seen Canada from coast-to-coast, to coast-to-coast, and back. Staff suspects George will not miss his travel to the Northwest Territories and Nunavut come next winter!

He has held a few different job titles over his 22 years at CSC. George has written the content for many of CSC’s most popular courses, so he knows his material very well.

Comments from past students have described George as one of the best trainers in Canada. “His patience and the time he took to understand us was amazing. He also catered to us in a very professional manner.” One colleague noted that he was always very pleasant to work with.

From the staff and I, we wish George all the best for a safe and happy retirement.

Safety, It’s an Attitude
