Canada minted the Diamond Jubilee Medal to mark the 60th year of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, as a way to recognize people who have made a significant contribution to Canadians.

Chomedey’s representative in the Quebec legislature since 2007 was honoured for 30 years of public service, Feb. 2. Former policeman turned politician Guy Ouellette previously served with distinction as a peace officer with the Sûreté de Québec, where he rose to the rank of sergeant.
