When The Honourable David C. Onley was appointed The Queen's representative in Ontario, his concern for people with disabilities became front page news. And when he took office on 5 September 2007, Ontario's 28th Lieutenant Governor became a highly placed champion for accessibility. In his 22-year career with Citytv, he was Canada's first senior newscaster with a visible disability. A popular news anchor, host/producer, science and technology specialist, and weatherman, he showed that ability outshines disability. For his public service, The Honourable David C. Onley has been honoured with the King Clancy Award for Disabled Persons, the Courage to Come Back Award, and the Positive Impact Award. He was inducted into the Terry Fox Hall of Fame and the Scarborough Walk of Fame, and received an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from Canada Christian College. Onley was appointed as senior lecturer in the Department of Political Sciences at University of Toronto Scarborough, his alma mater. His appointment began on October 1, 2014. He also served as the University's Special Ambassador for the Pan Am and Parapan American Games. David is currently serving on the Board for Crossroads Christian Communications Incorporated.
