Jim Lightbody president and CEO of the BCLC speaking at an AIM function. Sarah Darcey / PNG When Jim Lightbody first took a seat at the executive table of the British Columbia Lottery Corporation 16 years ago, there was not one woman among his peers. Things are very different today.
Growing up the child of a single mom, Nick Angrignon remembers the many afternoons he spent at a local after-school program. His mother was working full-time and wanted her son to have a fun, safe place to go between the 3 p.m. school bell and dinner. Now 28, Nick works for the Corporation of Delta as an aquatic leader represented by CUPE Local 454, Delta City workers. Angrignon didn’t realize then that the after-school program was made possible by United Way of the Lower Mainland.
