Retired lawyer Peter G. Bernard, Q.C. received the Maritime Museum of B.C. SS Beaver Medal for Maritime Excellence along with fellow recipients, Robert G. Allan, a noted Naval Architect and Dennis Washington, owner of the Washington Marine Group at an award Ceremony held at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club on November 20, 2012. The SS Beaver Medal recognizes Mr. Bernard’s outstanding contributions to the British Columbia marine community, including his many years of practice in the field of maritime law. This is a new award instituted in 2012 by the Maritime Museum of BC to acknowledge outstanding contributions or significant achievements in British Columbia’s maritime sector. The actual medals were struck from salvaged metals from the SS Beaver which ran aground at Prospect Point near Stanley Park in 1888.
