Duncan Recognizes Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Medallion Recipients

Eric Duncan, Member of Parliament for Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry honoured recipients of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Medallion at a ceremony on November 14, 2022.

In recognition of Her Late Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee earlier this year, recipients were joined by their family and friends at Co-cathedral of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Cornwall, where their accomplishments and achievements were highlighted, followed by a formal medallion presentation.

“We are here today to celebrate some amazing Canadians, who often don’t seek recognition or the spotlight but are taking it today” Duncan stated. “Who for years, decades, and some for over half a century, have toiled behind the scenes to volunteer, plan and use their natural God-given abilities to step up and make a difference.”

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Medallion was created by Members of Parliament across Canada to recognize exemplary Canadians and their contributions to their communities.

“Sometimes we need to make sure we don’t focus solely on the negative but take time to recognize those leaders in our community who are stepping up and doing their part to help others. It was certainly not easy to narrow down the finalists from a population of 103,000 to just fifty,” Duncan stated. “It shows how valued each of the recipients and their accomplishments truly are; they exemplify why we are proud to live in such a generous and giving community.”

Duncan was honoured to present medallions to two other deserving community leaders earlier this fall; the late David Murphy of Cornwall and Rev. Allan Tysick of Mountain.
