    Hi Steve,
    It's unfortunate Northwood was overlooked, but it's important to remember that the finalists weren't chosen by us, they were nominated by our readers. The winners were also not chosen by us, but from our readers and the appointed judges. I believe a lot of campaigning goes on behind the scenes in order to be nominated, which might be a good strategy for next year.

    steve... invent/sponsor your own award, place your people on the committee, have a email campaign to win votes.... and you too shall be a winner!

    It is unfortunate that you are cynical about the process becuause it does take away the great things all of the nominees and winners have done for the industry over the past year.

    When will you be publishing the photos from the gala. I was there and enjoyed it a lot. But I would love to see all the photos.

    There's plenty of brokers and companies that get these awards and they mean nothing but another shot to their egos. It's time to focus on true ethics and helping clients than supporting bad behaviours. We measure volume, not integrity. Several of the nominees even had convictions against them. Take your $300 that you spend (or more) at the gala's and donate to those that will probably not get a chance to use our services - the homeless.

    The comments seem to indicate animosity and pettiness amongst a few of the attendees. Everyone likes to win an award but I believe diplomacy and respect should prevail.

    If one wants to be vindictive then direct your pent up anger at the Banks and the Provincial government. For example why is it that Banks are still (in 2010) not legally required to provide amortization schedules, yet mortgage brokers must. Why do mortgage brokers allow provincial bureaucrats to change the cost of borrowing nomenclature making it even more confusing to the general public, without putting up a fight?
