Merv Tweed, member of Parliament for Brandon-Souris, presented Diamond Jubilee medals to five individuals Friday at the Army & Navy Air Force Veterans Unit No. 10 in Brandon.

"All of today’s recipients have made major contributions to Westman and Canada and their service to their communities cannot be overstated," said Tweed. "It is my honour to present this prestigious award to such worthy recipients."

The five recipients of today’s medal presentations are: Glen Kirkland, Rick Felstead, Bernie Chrisp, A.R Neale, and Murray Mcquiston.

They are all deserving of this nomination for their loyalty, dedication, hard work and volunteerism to Brandon and the Citizens of Westman, Tweed said.

This year marks the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Throne as Queen of Canada. The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal was created to mark this historic event and honour Canadians’ significant contributions and achievements.

To be eligible for this honour, a person must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada; must have made a significant contribution to a particular province, territory, region or community within Canada, or an achievement abroad that brings credit to Canada.
