HUGE News!


Today an official letter arrived from my MLA's office, which read:

"On behalf of his Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, I am pleased to inform you that you have been awarded a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal."

The letter went on to say that I was being invited, along with two guests to the presentation ceremony which will be held on January 25th, 2013.

WOW!  I am deeply humbled to receive this incredible honour and eternally grateful to those who had a hand in my nomination. (You know who you are.) 

What an amazing way to kick off the new year!

Wow! Congratulations! Very exciting and very well deserved. I am also pleased to announce that I just found out that the 4 athletes and coaches I nominated on behalf of the Canadian Paralympic Committee are also receiving medals. Quite illustrious company you're in!
