Paul Martin To Receive Samuel Cunard Prize
Cunard, along with the Canadian Maritime Heritage Foundation and the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, will award the third annual Samuel Cunard Prize for Vision, Courage and Creativity to former Prime Minister of Canada, The Right Honourable Paul Martin, on board flagship ocean liner Queen Mary 2 while she is docked in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
The Samuel Cunard Prize was inaugurated in 2015 to celebrate the
company’s 175th Anniversary in the ancestral home of its founder, Sir Samuel
Cunard. The award acknowledges an extraordinary individual who demonstrates the
qualities exemplified by Cunard throughout his life.
“Receiving the 2017 Samuel Cunard Prize is a great honour,” said Martin. “To do so in Halifax, the ancestral city of one of the Maritime Industry's greatest sons and on board the Queen Mary 2 makes it all the more special and I am very grateful to the three sponsoring organizations.”
