Lieutenant Governor Visits Brentwood
The Lieutenant Governor of BC, The Honourable Judith Guichon, visited our campus this afternoon to speak to the school about our history as a country, our government, and some programs and contests she has created with the aim towards sustainability and nation building.
After a gracious welcome and an introduction by Mr Patel, and the singing of “O Canada”, Ms. Guichon delivered her speech, followed by questions from the student body. Questions included topics such as the Site C dam being built on First Nations Land, the role of the Lieutenant Governor, and opinions on yesterday’s attack in Quebec City.
Last year, the Lieutenant Governor’s award program, “Stewards of the Future” awarded the Brentwood BEAT program a $1000 dollar bursary for the excellent recycling program on campus. It was great to have the Lieutenant Governor to visit the school that received a grant from her program.
