Princess Margaret students eye lights at St. Paul’s Hospital

Last year, the display raised more than $2.6 million for the St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation.

Once again this year, BCIT Instructor Don Zaklan and his BCIT Electrical Foundation students from the Princess Margret Secondary ACE-IT program have volunteered more than 1,000 hours of their time for testing, set-up preparations and wiring of the St. Paul’s Hospital Lights of Hope display.

Along with gaining valuable hands-on experience, the electrical students got the opportunity to tour the hospital’s electrical system to help further their trade knowledge.

The massive holiday light spectacle has been running for 17 years and continues to be successful because of strong community support through equipment and supply donations and volunteer hours.

Last year, the display raised more than $2.6 million for the St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation.
