Mayor Peter Milobar is one in 60,000.
The mayor is among this year’s recipients of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.
Milobar said Tuesday his came in the mail.
He wore it with pride while three Kamloops firefighters recently got their diamond jubilee medals.
And to make it more official, MP Cathy McLeod pinned Milobar with his medal.
The medals recognize significant contributions and achievements by Canadians. Milobar said he doesn’t know who nominated him, but he got notice through the Federation of Canadian Municipalities.
“I wasn’t about to create an event. It’s not my style.”
