I’m inviting you to celebrate the New Year and honour our community’s Canada 150 Leaders.
Canadians across the country celebrated Canada’s 150th anniversary of confederation. To mark this special occasion I am presenting twenty limited edition sesquicentennial pins to local community leaders.
You’re invited to celebrate the New Year and honour our community’s Canada 150 leaders in my office:
More Information on the Canada 150 Leadership Pins:
Over the summer Coquitlam-Port Coquitlam residents nominated their peers who have made a difference. The nominees represented our everyday leaders who work hard to make a positive contribution to Coquitlam-Port Coquitlam.
Mr. McKinnon, along with input from Port Coquitlam Mayor Greg Moore and Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart adjudicated al
l nominations. Preference was given to nominees who demonstrated one of the four pillars of Canada’s sesquicentennial celebrations: diversity and inclusion; national reconciliation of Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians; environmental stewardship; and youth matters.
Each winner will be awarded a collectible sesquicentennial pin, which is constructed with 100-year-old copper from the West Block of Parliament Hill.
