Images of Hope
“Steve is the go-to guy for so many good things in this community. All of us have benefited from his kind heart, his passion for the community and his commitment to making sure everyone belongs.”
Steve has served many roles on the London & District Labour Council, including First Vice President, among many official and unofficial roles in a long career of advocacy for labour and for this community. He served as President of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 741 and retired after 40-plus dedicated years as a bus driver at London Transit.
His community service includes advocating for worker safety and worker rights; rappelling off One London Place to raise money for Easter Seals; running for political office on a platform of hope, justice, compassion and fairness; and being an executive member on the London Huff-and-Puff Senior Fitness Association.
A proud East-Londoner born and raised, Steve is volunteer coordinator of the food security program at the Church of the Ascension, where he spends countless hours preparing community breakfasts and lunches for Londoners going through tough times. People experiencing homelessness, folks in shelter, young people at Youth Opportunities Unlimited, seniors on pensions – these are all the neighbours Steve is proud to call his friends.
