Kevin McCort

Kevin McCort, president and CEO of the Vancouver Foundation, addresses a barbecue hosted by North Thompson Communities Foundation at Barriere Forks Regional Park on Sunday. Governor General David Johnston has asked that all communities in Canada have their own community foundation, McCort said. B.C. has already met that challenge.
