John Plater – June 1967 to July 2012

It is with great sadness that we share the news of John Plater’s death.  John was a dedicated advocate for people with HIV and Hepatitis C.

A leader since the 1980s, John was a member of HALCO’s Board of Directors in 2000. The Ontario AIDS Network awarded him the Social Justice Award in 2006.

The Canadian AIDS Society and Ontario AIDS Network websites have moving tributes to John:
