A Peek into Secretive Order of BC Decisions
In the Province newspaper this morning Michael Smyth wrote about Gordon Campbell's OBC (Order of British Columbia) that he hasn't found time to accept,........ from the Premier, Christy Clark, that is.
You'd think most people awarded a medal for being pillars of the community would be thrilled to have their shiny new trinket pinned on their lapel during a public ceremony.
Not our Gordon Campbell. On Monday, the government confirmed the former premier has still not picked up his Order of B.C. medal, passed out to his co-recipients during a public ceremony in October.
-Michael Smyth The Province Two things may explain Campbell's reticence
The Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal is worn suspended from a broad royal blue ribbon, with red outer stripes, and double white stripes with a red central stripe
The Queen Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee Medal was created in 2002 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the ascension of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to the throne. The Medal was awarded to Canadians who have made outstanding and exemplary contributions to their communities or to Canada as a whole.
The award focuses both on the achievements of those people who, over the past 50 years, have helped create the Canada of today, and on the achievements of younger Canadians who are actively contributing to our future.
I can understand why Medals are worn suspended from a broad royal blue ribbon, there can be so many of them. On November 15, 2006 Prince Charles had nine. Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal is #6
Premier Christy Clark is a recipient of the Queen's Golden Jubilee medal but she wasn't wearing her's, rarely wears her's at official functions, must have left it in her trinket box on the top shelf beside her "Vancouver Riot" photo-op-Canuck's-Jersey.
Premier Christy Clark NEVER wears her Queen's Golden Jubilee medal for any occasion. What is she afraid of?
On the other hand, The Honourable Steven Point is a recipient of the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal and he wears it on his uniform at very official functions (Throne Speech) and the Awarding of the OBC.
