“Your new hospitality degrees actually look at the opportunities that are presented in resort development, in restaurants, in cruise ships, in arts and entertainment. I've had the opportunity to be served by your culinary training class — superb food. I'm coming here on a regular basis.” Gordon Campbell, BC Premier. April 23, 2008
