BY KIT SIMPSON
Last week Mayor Blake Campbell received notification from the Federation of Canadian Munisipalities (FCM) that he was the recipient of a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal in honour of the contributions he has made to his community and to Canada.
“FCM chose you to receive this distinction for your exemplary efforts to make your community a great place to live,” reads the letter. “It recognizes the important role municipalities – and their elected leaders –play in ensuring our prosperity and high quality of life.
” The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal honours significant contributions and achievements by Canadians. During the year of celebrations, 60,000 deserving Canadians will be recognized. The medal was created by the Government of Canada to mark Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s 60 years of service to this country.
We offer our sincere congratulations to Mayor Campbell.
