He is the only person ever to have won this award twice. Before this, Anton was honoured with the UWO’s Gold Medal and Pleva Award for Excellence in Teaching in 1986 and more recently he won 3 major awards for excellence in university teaching: the province-wide OCUFA in 2004, the national 3M award in 2005, and the Government of Ontario’s LIFT award in 2007.
