Last night, at a special ceremony at the Atlas Tube Centre in Lakeshore, MP Tracey Ramsey awarded 40 outstanding community leaders with commemorative Canada 150 Medals and Canada Sesquicentennial Pins to recognize the incredible contribution the recipients give to our community and nation every day.


“In the past two years I was able to meet and connect with incredible individuals who have inspired me. I have the wonderful opportunity to work with people in our communities who dedicate themselves every day by showing how much they care about their neighbours, making life better for all those around them.  I am honoured to be able to recognize them for their outstanding efforts to make our community a better place with these special symbols of Canada 150,” said Ramsey. “I want to thank every recipient for their continued generosity of spirit that makes our riding of Essex and Canada the best place in the world to live.”


The awards ceremony welcomed various community leaders, youth, activists, philanthropists, law enforcement, unsung heroes, artists and political figures with a crowd of 200 people joyfully and gratefully celebrating the accomplishments of all of the recipients.
