Douglas Justice, Associate Director of Horticulture and Collections at UBC Botanical Garden was awarded the Silver medal. The ARS mentioned that Douglas was a very worthy candidate for their Silver medal, as shown by the wording of his citation, perhaps in part influenced by his father, Clive Justice, who was awarded the ARS Gold medal in 2000.
