DR. BHAUSAHEB UBALE Died peacefully surrounded by his family in Pune, India on the 14th of March, 2012 at the age of 76. Dr. Ubale left us with a vision of a world where equal opportunity especially for basic human needs, education and employment should be a fundamental human right. His legacy is reflected in his work as president of the International Centre for Eradication of Poverty and his two books "Politics of Exclusion, Multiculturalism or Ghettoism" and "India at the Crossroad: A goldmine or a volcano? " Dr. Ubale spent his entire life fighting against injustices and inequality as Human Rights Commissioner and Race Relations Commissioner in Canada. His contribution to human rights has been recognized by numerous awards throughout his life most notably the Order of Ontario. Dr. Ubale had only one dream in his life: equality for everyone, everywhere, anytime. In this pursuit he dedicated his entire life towards this cause. We would like to appeal to his relatives, friends and colleagues to continue this dream. To honor his memory, McLaughlin College has established the Ubale Bursary Fund to provide financial assistance to York University students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
