      Congratulations to Lions Gate Chorus! Best of luck in Montreal.

      Barbershop harmony had been dropped from the competition, but through
      the untiring work of Bob Ebers (Montreal) last year it was reinstated
      as a separate category. Bob would never tell the story himself, but I
      will!

      In brief: Bob met with the heads of the sponsoring organizations and
      enlisted the help of BHS and its contest and judging community to
      present the case as to why barbershop should be included in the all-
      Canadian contest. If any of you know Bob, you know he does not give up
      easily. As a result of his efforts, barbershop harmony became a
      separate category in the CBC contest.

      Lions Gate deserves every accolade for their accomplishment. Just
      thought everyone should know a bit of the back story to the
      competition. Let's hope that an increasing number of barbershop
      choruses participate in future.

      Again, congratulations to Lions Gate. Go get 'em! And here's hoping
      they are one of many CBC champs representing barbershop harmony.
