“Gentlemen, this is a football” – Vince Lombardi
Inspired by Vince Lombardi’s back to basics approach, Today’s BC Liberals have been working hard to get the fundamentals right. While we’ve been busy overhauling our infrastructure here at BCL HQ, our Riding Associations have been as well. Because like that legendary coach of the Green Bay Packers, we are acutely aware that the only place success comes before work is in the dictionary.
So this past weekend, we celebrated our first ever Huzzah Awards, acknowledging those Riding Associations who are rolling up their sleeves and getting to work.
Besides being one of our executive director’s favourite expressions (and Scrabble plays for 30 point word score), res ipsa loquitur. It is an archaic (first known use: 1573) version of “hooray!”, which is fitting, considering how proud we are of all your hard work. These awards are part subjective, part objective but 100% well deserved.
