Two high profile events helped round out the last week as some high flyers and some high achievers put on the ritz to celebrate. First up, London Air Services, celebrated their 10th Anniversary with the opening of their new avation centre in YVR’s south terminal and the christening of their newest bird – an impressive Challenger 605 that is first class luxury all the way. Next, the stars were out at the Vancouver convention centre for Inclusion Works ’09 – a hiring and recruiting event hosted by the Aboriginal Human Resources Council.
