To whom it may concern:

I have known Willi Nolan for more than fifteen years, and have worked closely with her and watched her expend her energy on many projects for the good of humanity. Although Willi is a Canadian Metis, her loving care embraces all people everywhere, regardless of sex, age, race or country of origin!

Willi has shown extraordinary concern for her children’s well being by uprooting her life and relocating in what she saw to be a better environment in which to grow up. She has been involved in the work of the International Institute of Concern for Public Health (IICPH) and its many projects for over 15 years. She has also founded and organized, without much help or funding, a very successful program for Aboriginal and non-native youth in the summers, encouraging respect for the earth, responsible and sustainable forestry, and human protection from toxic and radioactive substances. Willi successfully resisted the expansion of the nuclear, mining and extraction industries, assisted the people suffering from mercury poisoning, drinking water contamination and sick buildings and helped a community at risk from factory-farms.

It is with pleasure and confidence that I recommend that Willi be assisted by companionship, information sharing and financial awards. She will truly produce nothing but good for Canada, its First Nations, and the global community.
