FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SASKATOON - Ted K. Rowan-Legg, CBA National Treasurer and Assistant General Counsel with the Royal Bank of Canada in Toronto, has been awarded the 2001 Canadian Bar Association President's Award.

In making the announcement, CBA President Daphne Dumont, Q.C., of Charlottetown said, "The award honours Ted's significant contribution to the Canadian Bar Association as a member and most recently as National Treasurer. An extremely modest man, Ted always insisted his efforts paled in comparison to the overwhelming recognition and appreciation the CBA always returned to him."

A Halifax native, Ted Rowan-Legg holds B.A. and LL.B degrees from Dalhousie University and is a member of the Nova Scotia and Ontario Bars. Mr. Rowan-Legg is a dedicated member of the community and the CBA. He is the past Director and President of the Downtown Churchworkers Association, the founding director of the Perth Davenport Adult Literacy Centre and the Warden at Grace Church-on-the-Hill in Toronto.

As a long-time CBA member, he has been actively involved since 1988 and has been an elected member of CBA National Council since 1991. Ted Rowan-Legg served as CBA National Treasurer since 1999, after acting in various capacities on numerous committees, including: member of the CBAO Finance Committee from 1989 to 1992; Treasurer and Chair of the Finance Committee from 1992 to 1994; CBAO Representative on the National Executive Committee from 1994 to 1996; member and Chair of the CBAO Strategic Planning Committee; and member of the CBAO Finance and Regionalization committees.

To be eligible for the award, a candidate must meet at least one of the following criteria: made a significant contribution to the legal profession; made a significant contribution to the Canadian Bar Association; or made a noteworthy contribution to the public life of Canada.

The Canadian Bar Association is dedicated to improvement in the law and the administration of justice. Some 37,000 lawyers, notaries, law teachers and law students from across Canada are members.
