bc_lions.jpgJimmy Pattison, Wendy B. McDonald, Frank A. Griffiths, Charles Bentall – these Junior Achievement of British Columbia Business Laureates Hall of Fame inductees have helped shape our province into the great place it is today and last week, the list grew by three. Peter Brown (Canaccord Financial), Dr. Ken Spencer (Creo Products) and, inducted posthumously, David W. Spencer (Spencer’s department stores) were recognized at the annual gala last week at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver and have now joined an elite group of outstanding individuals who “make equally outstanding contributions to free enterprise and their society”. Junior Achievement Canada established the Canadian Business Hall of Fame in 1979 and now has over 140 members.
