TORONTO – NDP MP Craig Scott (Toronto-Danforth) is pleased to announce the names of 30 community leaders whom he is awarding the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal on Saturday, February 2, 2013 at Queen’s Park. The medal was created to mark the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne. Each Member of Parliament was given 30 medals to present to constituents who have made significant contributions to their communities.  We are proud to announce the recipients’ names representing Toronto-Danforth.
Last September,  we were proud to receive recognition by the mayor and council at City Hall for the International Award bestowed upon our Zhong Hua Men Archway in Phoenix Arizona in the spring of 2012.  In May 2013,  our archway will also be recognized  by Canada Post on a Canadian stamp.  You can see it on their current posters advertising stamps and coins for the Year of the Snake.
