Quotes 

"The Minister of Veterans Affairs Commendation is the highest honour I can bestow and I am extremely grateful for the wide and varying array of volunteer work they've undertaken. These six British Columbians have done tremendous work that is making a difference, all while not expecting to be recognized. And for me, it's even more important when it's helping and honouring the folks who've served our country."
