Ernie Gladstone, field unit superintendent at Gwaii Haanas, has received a public service award of excellence. Mr. Gladstone was one of three Parks Canada team members who received this year’s award. He was recognized in the management excellence category for his leadership ability to bring two different cultures to work together. “As Field Unit Supervisor, Mr. Gladstone is responsible for protecting ancient totem poles and burial grounds built by his Haida ancestors,” Parks Canada said in a news release. “He also breaks down cultural barriers and creates new opportunities for residents of Haida Gwaii. Since he began his career, Ernie has never lost sight of his goal: doing what is right for Gwaii Haanas. He finds ways to resolve conflict and build understanding while honouring his Haida heritage and his responsibilities as a Parks Canada manager.”
