Ottawa - March 18, 2013 - The Public Prosecution Service of Canada is proud to announce that 13 PPSC employees have been honoured with the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. Medal ceremonies were held in PPSC offices in 2012 and the early part of 2013 to honour their contributions to their communities and to Canada.
PPSC recipients were presented with the medal by the Director of Public Prosecutions, Brian Saunders, George Dolhai, Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions or Acting Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions André A. Morin Ad. E.
The medal was created to mark the 2012 celebrations of the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Throne. It is a symbol of recognition to those who have made significant contributions to society, like Her Majesty The Queen, and have dedicated themselves to a cause worthy of service in their communities and country.
“We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all PPSC recipients of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal and to thank them for their efforts,” said Mr. Saunders.
“The contributions they have made to their communities and to the criminal justice system have had a positive effect for which we are grateful.”
Federal prosecutors are guided by the policies contained in the FPS Deskbook and by guidelines issued by the Director of Public Prosecutions.
