  3. Congratulations on your award, Kevin! It couldn’t have been given to a more kind and well-deserving person. I still have fond memories of meeting you at BCAB 2014 and 2015, as well as sharing drinks with Glen Slingerland and you in Chilliwack in early summer 2015. Glad to hear you are continuing to find success in PG!
