Environmental lawyer Alan Scarth is the recipient of the 2014 Distinguished Service Award by the Manitoba Bar Association.
Scarth led legal proceedings on the Rafferty-Alameda Dam in Saskatchewan, which generated the first environmental-assessment law in Canada.
He also helped develop the Cooperatives Act and was counsel to the province on North Dakota's Garrison Diversion. He co-founded FortWhyte Alive. Scarth was made a member of the Order of Canada in 2001.
He was honoured Friday at the MBA midwinter conference. Last year's distinguished-service award recipient was Justice Marshall Rothstein of the Supreme Court. Previous recipients include Roland Penner and David Matas.
