About Jim Davey
Jim Davey was the Programme Secretary in the Prime Minister’s Office during Trudeau’s first Government (1968-1972). In late 1974, he was appointed Senior Advisor to the Minister of Transport (Jean Marchand). Within a month of his appointment, he assembled a number of people who formed a policy review task force with a mandate to conduct a wide-ranging review of transportation policy in Canada and report back in 1975. He was subsequently appointed Senior ADM at Transport Canada, reporting directly to the Minister. The report was completed in the spring of 1975. Before he had a chance to fully establish a new group at Transport Canada, he died on August 17, 1975 from injuries sustained from falling off a ladder at his home.
In 1976, CTRF accepted the responsibility of awarding the Jim Davey Award for the best Doctoral paper. The fund was established by friends and colleagues of the late Jim Davey.
