SFU Birthday Dignitaries

Burnaby's own Simon Fraser University is turning 40 this Friday. The opening celebrations will feature some special guests from the university's past. The most notable guest is former Social Credit Premier Bill Bennett, whose father W.A.C. was Premier when the university was created. Of course, the celebrations are taking place just outside the doors of the W.A.C. Bennett Library.

B.C. Advanced Education Minister Murray Coell has other commitments and will not be attending the university's 40th birthday party.

The best thing about SFU turning 40 was that insert they had in the Vancouver Sun. It boasted about having B.C.'s 3 most recent premiers: Campbell, Dosanjh, and Clark.
What about dear old "Miller Time" Dan Miller? Was he that forgetable? I guess the answer is a resounding "YES!"
Then again it probably doesn't help the school's marketing campaign to say three of the last four. And why are they boasting about Ujjal and Glen? At least Gord Campbell has done some good for this messed up province.
