2006 Paragon Award Winners

Mr. D'Autremont: — Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Well, Mr. Speaker, last night I and a number of my colleagues, including the Leader of the Opposition, had the opportunity to attend the Regina and District Chamber of Commerce Paragon Awards, celebrating business excellence in the city of Regina, Mr. Speaker. And there was a very large turnout there. In fact I believe that there was more people there than there was at the Premier’s leader’s dinner in fact.

Mr. Speaker, the Young Entrepreneur of the Year was Laura Englund from Zazu the Salon here in Regina — a very good shop, Mr. Speaker. Community involvement was won by the well-known and much beloved in this province, the Saskatchewan Roughrider Football Club.

Community alliance, Mr. Speaker, the winners of that award were the Regina Food Bank and 94.5 Jack FM Food for Friends, Mr. Speaker. And that was received — that award — by Woody from Bill and Woody morning show on Jack FM, Mr. Speaker.

Mr. Speaker, the Marketing and Promotional Achievement Award was won by Prairie Motorcycle. Now on this particular award, Mr. Speaker, there was another finalist that I was cheering for, Burger Baron.

Mr. Speaker, export achievement was won by Partners in Motion; customer service excellence by Performance Marine; new business ventures by Imagination Ink; the Athena Award was won by Jeanne Martinson, Mr. Speaker. And the Business of the Year was Partners in Motion. Congratulations to them all.
