Hundreds of Nova Scotians will be honoured throughout the year with the Diamond Jubilee Medal. Today’s recipients were nominated by the premier. The medal recipients are: “Our son Garret is already back in the Dominican Republic, volunteering his time and efforts to help others,” said Garret Fancy’s father LeRoy, who, with mother Marcia, accepted the medal on their son’s behalf. “We’re sure that if he were here today, he’d say what an honour it is to receive the Diamond Jubilee medal. We are very proud of our son and are happy to accept this medal on his behalf.” Throughout the year, the Diamond Jubilee medal will be awarded to 60,000 deserving Canadians.
