As part of the college’s 50th anniversary celebrations, Humber last week hosted a book signing and lecture with author and longtime TVO broadcaster Steve Paikin.

Paikin, who is also a Humber honorary degree holder, was discussing his book Bill Davis: Nation Builder, and Not So Bland After All. The book is the only authorized biography of former Ontario premier Bill Davis, who is widely credited with creating Ontario’s community college system. Davis will receive an honorary degree from Humber at this year’s convocation in June.

Copies of Paikin’s books were available for purchase, with proceeds going towards Humber’s 50th anniversary scholarship fund.
