Mayor Baldwin awarded Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal

White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin recently received the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal in honour of the contribution he has made to the community and Canada.

Mayor Baldwin was nominated for the medal by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) for his exemplary efforts in making our community a great place to live. The medal also recognizes the important role municipalities - and their elected leaders play - in ensuring prosperity and high quality of life.

“Your peers in local government across the country admire your accomplishments as a community leader, and congratulate you on earning this prestigious award,” read a congratulatory letter from the FCM.

“I am honoured to receive a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal,” said Mayor Baldwin. “White Rock is a spectacular place to live, with a strong sense of community. It has been a pleasure to dedicate such a large part of my life to this wonderful place.”

The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal honours significant contributions and achievements by Canadians. During the year of celebrations, 60,000 deserving Canadians will be recognized. The medal was created by the Government of Canada to mark Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's 60 years of service to this country.
