Thank you Winston Churchill!!

During the darkest days of the Second World War - when defeat at the hands of the Nazis looked like a distinct possibility — members of Winston Churchill's cabinet approached him and suggested that perhaps he should order the theatres closed as a way to save money. Without missing a beat, the prime minister replied, then what are we fighting for?

Thanks and congratulations to Brian Brett, BC book award winner who added this comment to his reception speech.

Too bad the B.C. provincial government doesn't feel this way!!
