On Feb. 19 New Brunswick native Florence Carter, who lost her sight at the age of 16, received the Governor-General’s Caring Canadian Award for over 60 years teaching the blind. Ms. Carter would like to clarify that her comment to Lieutenant-Governor David Onley: “Isn’t your term up now?” was made in jest at an informal conversation after the award presentations. The book that Leaside resident Ms. Carter co-authored, entitled Celebrating Braille: A Canadian Approach, reflects the changes that have been made to the Braille code to incorporate new symbols.
