CANADA 150 COMMEMORATIVE MEDAL
October 7, 2016
OTTAWA: Jim Eglinski, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, is disappointed to hear of the Liberal government’s decision not to issue a commemorative medal to mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation.
“Canada has had a long history of issuing medals to commemorate the Confederation of Canada and recognize deserving Canadians across the country. Commemorative medals are awarded to deserving Canadians who have demonstrated significant contributions to Canada, their community, or to their fellow Canadians,” stated MP Eglinski.
An e-petition and paper petition has been launched calling on the Government to reverse their decision and issue a commemorative medal for the 150th anniversary of Confederation.
“I encourage you to sign the petition to show your support for this established Canadian tradition and the importance of recognizing the achievements and contributions of Canadians,” concluded MP Eglinski.
