Vice-chair of LMTV honored with award

Mason Loh, a lawyer and vice-chair of the LMTV advisory board, a new multicultural and multilingual television station Toronto-based Rogers Broadcasting hopes to start in Vancouver, was honoured this week by Volunteer Vancouver.

Loh, who was nominated for the award by the United Chinese Community Enrichment Services Society (SUCCESS) won the Volunteer Vancouver Award for Leadership, which recognizes exceptional leadership in the volunteer and charitable section.

Loh, who has worked with several non-profit groups in B.C. served as a director of SUCCESS from 1995 and chair of the organization from 1994 to 1998. In presenting the award to Loh, the Volunteer Vancouver foundation noted that Loh has always believed in the advancement of the rights of citizens and to that end he has successfully advocated for improvements in immigration and social policies.

“Supporting the Chinese community, Mason has extended the scope of services through SUCCESS and this includes facilitating building of a multi-level care facility for seniors in Chinatown.”

“Mason understands and supports grassroots involvement in community service and has provided leadership training and seniors service programs,” said a statement from the Volunteer Vancouver Foundation.

It also mentioned how Loh through his work with the Law Courts Education Society of B.C., has supported legal education within the Chinese community.
