Leaside Life contributors Lorna Krawchuk, Geoff Kettel and Carol Burtin Fripp are among 20 constituents from Don Valley West to be honoured on July 1st, 2017 by MP Rob Oliphant. The Canada 150 Award for Citizenship has been inaugurated to both celebrate the historic 150 milestone and honour people who have built our country through their contributions in leadership, community service, sports and countless other ways. Award recipients will receive a special limited edition Anniversary pin, that actually contains a special piece of Canadiana, as it has been fashioned from copper that was recently removed from the roofs of Canada’s Parliament during a renovation.
MP Oliphant will be hosting his annual Canada Day celebration on July 1, 2017, 11:30 am-2:30 pm at the Toronto Botanical Garden & Edwards Gardens, 777 Lawrence Ave. East (at Leslie). The community is invited to join in: there will be free food, an information booth, live entertainment and lots of fun for children and people of all ages.
