Tonight, I had the great opportunity to see Alexandre Bilodeau receive his gold medal at the Awards Ceremony at BC Place. The crowd was stoked about Bilodeau and they were loud. We had third row floors and therefore, we had one of the best views of the presentation that one could hope for.
Following the awards, there is a musical performer, to bring a festive atmosphere to the stadium. Each night, there is a provincial theme to the event. Ironically, tonight's theme was Quebec. What a fitting theme to match Bilodeau's gold.
I had the opportunity to attend this ceremony thanks to the generosity of my old Ivey classmate, John Toomey, who is seeing almost every event during his trip to Vancouver. Below, you can see John, his wife, Rebecca and son, Nolan.
