Dr. Julio Montaner

"I have watched Gillian’s community involvement grow and deepen over the years. Among her many contributions, the one that always stood out for me was her dedication to educating policy makers and the public about substance use and harm reduction initiatives in her role as chair of Keeping the Door Open: Dialogues on Drug Use. She is knowledgeable and respected, and has become a popular presenter at international HIV/AIDS and drug policy events. Gillian is a great example of how each one us can channel our passion, creativity and compassion in a way that can help us make a difference."

Director of the British Columbia Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS, Director of IDC & Physician Program Director for HIV/AIDS PHC

    At the end of the talk someone from the audience asked the Dalai Lama, "Why didn't you fight back against the Chinese?" The Dalai Lama looked down, swung his feet just a bit, then looked back up at us and said with a gentle smile, "Well, war is obsolete, you know." Then, after a few moments, his face grave, he said, "Of course the mind can rationalise fighting back... but the heart, the heart would never understand. Then you would be divided in yourself, the heart and the mind, and the war would be inside you."
