Scott Metcalfe has been a true friend and supporter to RTDNA Canada. He has served over the years and now, as he takes on a new adventure in retirement, it is important for us at RTDNA Canada to give Scott a send off with much admiration and respect. Scott will be missed by his colleagues and I hope this tribute confirms how much Scott is respected and loved.”
