Tyee Poll: Who Do You Think Should Get the Order of BC?

As Bob Mackin reported last week, 25 people were named to the Order of B.C.

"Besides the eclectic grouping of real estate marketing mogul Bob Rennie, former Vancouver Canucks' coach and general manager Pat Quinn and writer/multimedia artist Douglas Coupland, the class of 2014 is notable because it represents a combined $2 million in direct and indirect donations to the BC Liberal Party since 2005."

This year's selections had echoes of 2011, when Gordon Campbell, Ken Dobell and David Emerson were selected. All were unpopular choices and had strong connections to the governing Liberals.

Back then, The Tyee launched the People's Order of B.C. where people could nominate their own choices for the award. Not sure if that will happen again but here's your chance to send a shout out to those you think have been neglected.
