In celebration of our country’s sesquicentennial anniversary, earlier today I unveiled the Canada 150 Service Medallion – a commemoration coin in recognition of Brandon-Souris volunteers who have made outstanding contributions in their community.
The nominations for this award are for deserving individuals who, through their volunteerism, have enriched the lives of others and have made a lasting impact in their community.
I launched the Canada 150 Service Medallion in resp...onse to the Liberal government breaking tradition and cancelling the practice of issuing a commemorative medal to mark important anniversaries and other great occasions.
This is the first time in history that the federal government will not recognize hardworking Canadian volunteers on a milestone anniversary of Confederation.
I firmly believe that Westman volunteers should be recognized for their efforts, and the Canada 150 Service Medallion provides the perfect way to do just that.
Nominations are now open and you can do so by visiting my website:http://www.larrymaguire.ca/canada150
