Early Bird ticket deadline: September 27, 2013

NEW WESTMINSTER – Less than a week remains to get in on Early Bird tickets for The Justice Institute of British Columbia (JIBC) Foundation Awards for Justice and Public Safety Gala, presented by Scotiabank, on November 28 at Vancouver’s Hyatt Regency hotel.

The 12th annual fundraising event will celebrate the outstanding contributions of this year’s award recipients by recognizing their dedication to the safety of families, communities and businesses across the province.  

For 2013, The JIBC Foundation is pleased to honour the following recipients: 

Dr. Joseph H. Cohen Award 

North Shore Rescue, one of the oldest Search and Rescue (SAR) teams in Canada with a 50-year history and more than 2,500 mountain SAR operations by dedicated volunteers. 

Anthony P. Pantages, QC Medal

The Honourable Thomas R. Braidwood, QC, the sole commissioner of The Braidwood Inquiry appointed in 2008 to inquire into, and report on, the use of conducted energy weapons by provincially regulated law enforcement agencies and for longstanding service to seeking justice and equality for all.

JIBC Foundation Heroes & Rescue Award

Master Corporal Brent Nolasco, a SAR Technician with an exceptional life-saving tale of rescuing a young Vancouver Island woman who was unconscious and trapped in an overturned and submerged vehicle after it left the road. He was in SAR training at the time, so technically, still a student.

JIBC Foundation Community Leadership Award

Eric J. Harris, QC, a labour and employment lawyer recognized for giving generously of his time and resources to make a meaningful difference in the areas of social policy, health and education; and declared a Lawyer of the Year by the Best Lawyers organization in 2009.
