jubileemedaljpgI was surprised and delighted to receive a Diamond Jubilee Medal in December 2012.  60,000 medals have been presented to Canadians to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Queen’s Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne.  I was nominated by the Macdonald Laurier Institute in recognition of my contribution to Canada-United States relations. Thanks to Brian Lee Crowley and his team at MLI for this great honour.
