A home for the School of Medicine is a big step closer after Dean David Walker, Meds’71, fired-up a backhoe and performed the ceremonial groundbreaking for the School’s new $77-million building.

Conservative Senator Hugh Segal, a former Fellow in the School of Policy Studies, Kingston and the Islands Liberal MPP John Gerretsen, Arts’64, Law’67, and Kingston Mayor Harvey Rosen, Law’75, joined Queen’s officials for the late-October ceremony.

Fully 92 per cent of the funding for the new building, to be located at the corner of Stuart and Barrie Streets, has been raised.

Construction will begin shortly with a projected completion date of 2011.
