I would like to first acknowledge Colin’s many contributions as a trustee of the Government House Foundation. It such an honour for all us to be here and see firsthand the results of the work of Colin and his colleagues. Colin’s lifetime of community and volunteer service spans the province. He currently is on the Board of the Victoria Airport and is Vice-Chair of the regional district waste water treatment project. He is also a director of 625 Powell Street Foundation which benefits Vancouver’s downtown eastside. Colin was Chair of Squamish’s Westcoast Railway Association and its heritage railway park. He has served his engineering profession with distinction not only on the Island but also across Canada. For over 30 years, Colin has been a member of Rotary and is dedicated to the Rotary’s ideals of community service.
