Northern Gas Pipelines: Canada Gala 2002

4-16-02: "Since the Gala"

2-9-02: While Arctic gas pipeline discussions may not be solely responsible for the flurry of international cooperation and interaction of late, it certainly contributes.  Northern Gas Pipelines believes that such events, while not directly applicable to gas projects, contribute to them in such important ways that modest coverage of the event below gives insight to some of the relationships and people who will ultimately affect their outcome.  Similarly, events such as this week's Arctic Gas Symposium in Calgary contribute as well, perhaps more directly.

The Canada Gala convened in Anchorage Saturday evening at the Sheraton, an initiative of the Canadian Consulate General Seattle, supported by Gala Chairman Kevin Cook, assistant Chair, Ruth Gunn, the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA), the Alaska World Affairs Council and World Trade Center Alaska.  (Left, two of the six Co-Chairs: Fairbanks Mayor Rhonda Boyles and University of Alaska President Mark Hamilton; Right: Canadian Consul General Roger Simmons, P.C. with Yvonne Cecelia Benson, who provided an inspiring song devotion in memory of those who lost their lives on 9-11.  Simmons introduced the song and moment of silence by saying that, "September 11 once again proved the closeness of the bond between Canada and the United States."  See this theme at an earlier Commonwealth North meeting.)  Simmons, accompanied by his wife, Darlene, and daughters Holly and Stacy, welcomed guests to the overflowing Howard Rock Ballroom, inviting all to celebrate the Canadian-Alaskan relationship and introduced a spectacular rifle drill presentation by the United States Air Force Silent Drill Team.  Supporting the gala atmosphere were the UAA Department of Music, the Air Force Band of the Pacific, and the After Six Orchestra.  Simmons presented the "Order of the Smashed Brick" to Former Alaska Governor Walter J. Hickel, Past Director of the UAA Canadian Studies Program Diddy Hitchins and Ron Sheardown of Greatland Exploration, Ltd.  The award recognizes "...outstanding efforts of those Americans and Canadians who devote so much of their time and energies to cement the already close relationship between Canada and the United States, ...honors those who seek to dismantle walls of misunderstanding and mistrust."  Honorable Larry Bagnell, Yukon Member of Parliament, toasted the United States while Alaska Representative Fred Dyson offered another toast to Canada and its western provincial and territorial citizens.  A Gala sponsor, Dave Welsh of BP, said, "Cooperation is essential in pursuing the gas pipeline projects with which I am involved.  Hopefully, we will have success in this endeavor".  A series of drawings produced many winners in the audience for Canadian air, lodging and product prizes worth over $15,000, one enjoyed by Mr. & Mrs. John Norman, Esq. (Photo).  (As is our custom, we invite readers to provide additions/corrections to safeguard accuracy and we attest that those shown below looked much better than the photos reflect....  -dh)   *   3-15-02 Whitehorse Star follow-up.
