The Leo Awards, for excellence in BC film and television, were handed out last week during three ceremonies that culminated with the gala dinner at the Hotel Vancouver on Sunday, June 14th. Unable to attend myself, I sent my trusted friend — and BC film and TV aficionado — Laura Yee-Lim to the red carpet.
