Member’s Statement – December 12, 2016

Mr. Speaker, it is with much pleasure that I recognize the recipients of this year’s YMCA Peace Medals in my riding of Oakville. The YMCA of Oakville proudly celebrates National Peace Week and recognizes ongoing community work, creating conditions that allow for equality, inclusion, and respect for diversity.
The youth recipient was Victoria Winslow, an Oakville Trafalgar High School student who organized food drives and helped build schools in Kenya.
Kate Rehm, the adult recipient, is a vice-principal at White Oaks Secondary School and is recognized for her work in student-oriented community initiatives.
The group recipient was Resiliency 4 Recovery, a youth-led support group aiding those aged 16 to 29 with mental health or substance abuse challenges.
I am so proud to acknowledge these recipients in Oakville for their work as community peace builders. As we enter this joyous holiday season, let us all look for peace and celebrate the peacemakers among us.
