    an FYI – it should read the "Hugh Haugland Award", not the "Hugh Hauland" – Hugh was a colleague of mine while I was at CTV in Montreal. A fantastic cameraman/editor, and the son of longtime CTV Montreal anchor Bill Haugland, he was killed in a helicopter crash while working in Mont Laurier, north of Montreal, in 2009. Hugh was just 44, and the father of two teens.
