The Commissioners and staff at the OHRC extend a special thank you to Ruth Goba, who served as Interim Chief Commissioner from February 28 – October 30, 2015. While many people would be happy simply keeping things afloat when serving in an interim role, Ruth chose to go another way. She led us boldly through a challenging time of transition with vision, wisdom and a sense of humour. Ruth helped to build strong community partnerships and was an inspiring leader on carding and racial profiling, and laid a solid foundation for our continued work in this area. Ruth was not afraid to take on challenging issues. In doing so, she has challenged and inspired all of us to continue to protect and enhance human rights across Ontario. Ruth will continue her term as a Commissioner, and will also lend her expertise on the Board of the Human Rights Legal Support Centre.
