Roger Reid, MLA for Livingstone-Macleod, left, presents MD of Pincher Creek Coun. David Cox with his Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal last Thursday at Reid’s local office. Cox’s medal acknowledges his many years of service with local fire services, including the Pincher Creek Emergency Services Commission. 

The commemorative medal marks the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne as Queen of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth realms.

In Canada, it is awarded to those who are viewed by their communities as remarkable volunteers and contributors, members of the Canadian Armed Forces, emergency service workers and those that go above and beyond in an effort to positively impact their communities.
