From the Victoria Times-Colonist newspaper, April 23rd, 2018...
 
"For the sixth consecutive year, Roger McKinnon and a group of business and municipal leaders have beaten the bushes of Vancouver Island to find the best and brightest young entrepreneurs.
There never seems to be a shortage, which leaves McKinnon and an a cast of judges from up and down the Island with the enviable task of whittling from an impressive list the 20 who receive the Top 20 Under 40 Business and Community Achievement Awards.

“It’s very hard to make those decisions,” says McKinnon, a longtime Island real estate developer who founded the awards. “Every year, we put the call out for the best and brightest and they roll in. Then comes the very difficult task of picking just 20.”

This year, 111 nominations were considered.

McKinnon said winners are no longer selected only for their business successes, but half the merit in their selection is how they give back to their communities, either through charitable work, contributions or through programs they have developed through their businesses."

Congratulations Will Duggan, from all of us!
