Local MP Guy Lauzon announced Thursday that his riding has again won the distinction of puttin gup the most Canadian flags on July 1.
Lauzon accepted the Proud to be Canadian Award at the Conservative caucus meeting Wednesday.
The award is presented to the riding that displays the most Canadian flags on Canada Day.
“It is an honour to accept this award on behalf of the constituents of Stormont, Dundas and South Glengarry," said Lauzon. "It was a tough competition as 40 of my colleagues participated in the campaign and the final numbers were close.”
The Proud to be Canadian Campaign is an opportunity for Conservative Members of Parliament to participate in a competition to encourage constituents to display a Canadian Flag on Canada’s birthday.
“It will give me great pride to congratulate all the constituents of SD&SG during a statement from the floor of the House of Commons on Friday," said Lauzon.
