OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 26, 2012) -
Dr. Philip Currie is known around the world for his groundbreaking and sometimes controversial work on dinosaurs. Time Magazine named him one of Canada's top five explorers having worked on every continent, collecting dinosaurs from sites as remote as Mount Kirkpatrick in Antarctica and the Gobi Desert of China and Mongolia.
Now the Royal Canadian Geographical Society (RCGS) wants Canadians to meet Dr. Currie and learn about his trailblazing work on dinosaurs. The Society is hosting a news conference for journalists to meet Dr. Currie before he receives the Society's Gold Medal, its highest honour. Good friends, Dan Aykroyd and Donna Dixon Aykroyd, will be presenting Dr. Currie with the award during the annual Dinner of the Society's College of Fellows that will take place later in the evening. Funds raised during the evening will support the Society's vital educational programs. The following people are expected to witness Dr. Currie's receipt of this prestigious honour:
