Oh no! You're leaving!?!
I hope we continue to find ways to work together. The students of UVic benefited greatly from your mentorship.
With affection

Wishing you all the best in this new chapter! Thanks for all your mentorship, for everything you gave to our UVic community and our broader community - Social Justice Studies students over the past decade have been lucky to have you at the helm. You will be missed!

Dear Margo:

Congratulations on your time at the helm of SJS. Its presence and voice have now... enhanced the committed scholarship and worldview of a full generation of new scholars and people entering their lives and careers with a UVic degree. I am honoured to know you, and wish you a fulfilling trajectory as your retirement opens up.

Margo, let me add my voice to the chorus of well-deserved praise for all your work over these many years. We’ll miss your hand on the helm yet look forward to working with and supporting Nancy Clark.
Speaking from my albeit minimal experience, retirement is great in so far as you can pick and choose the projects you think most important and, as a good labour activist told me when she retired, the best thing about retirement is that you don’t have to put up with the crap from on high
