MLA: Order of British Columbia Honours Excellence

If you know anyone in this community who has truly led by example, I encourage you to nominate them for the Order of British Columbia.

Editor,

The order of British Columbia offers British Columbians a golden opportunity to take part in the public recognition of individuals who demonstrate outstanding achievement, excellence and distinction in their particular fields of endeavour.

Nominations are now being received for the 2012 Order of British Columbia. If you know anyone in this community who has truly led by example, I encourage you to nominate them for the Order of British Columbia.

The deadline for nominations is 5 p.m. on March 12, 2012. An independent Advisory Council, chaired by the Chief Justice of British Columbia, will consider nominations.

Since 1990, 317 British Columbians from all walks of life and many regions of the province have received the Order of British Columbia, the Province’s highest award.

Nomination forms are available from the Honours and Awards Secretariat in Victoria (250 356 1105), the Order of BC website at www.orderofbc.gov.bc.ca, or your nearest Government Agent.

Here is your opportunity to participate in the appointment of deserving British Columbians to the Order of British Columbia.

Norm Macdonald MLA
