CUPE paramedics honoured with Diamond Jubilee Award

OTTAWA—Nine members of the BC Ambulance Paramedics, CUPE Local 873, have been awarded with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal. This prestigious award recognizes these members for the work they have done to promote the paramedics profession locally, provincially and nationally.

The awards were presented yesterday (November 19) by federal Minister of Health Leona Aglukkaq and parliamentary secretary Dr. Colin Carrie.

CUPE National president Paul Moist and CUPE BC president Barry O’Neill were on hand to congratulate the members on their achievement.

“We are very proud of the BC Ambulance Paramedics – every day they are out in our communities saving lives,” said O’Neill. “Though not recognized enough for their role, this award shows how important paramedics are.”
