Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal for 33
Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo MP Cathy McLeod and Sen. Nancy Greene Raine presented the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal to 33 constituents during a ceremony at Thompson Rivers University on Wednesday, Oct. 10.
“It was a great pleasure to pay tribute to the recipients who have gone above and beyond to serve their communities,” McLeod said. “The Diamond Jubilee Medal commemorates the extraordinary service of Her Majesty the Queen and are a fitting tribute to those who have made this country a more caring nation for all, helping others, giving back and going beyond the call of duty.”
The Diamond Jubilee Medal was created in honour of the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne.
