Letter: Committee shares diversity award

Dear editor:

I’d like to say that I am extremely honoured to have received the Lord Mayor’s Volunteer Award for diversity, equity and inclusion, a sentiment that unfortunately did not come through in the article “NOTL volunteers honoured by town,” (The Lake Report, Nov. 25).

I’m embarrassed to be singled out, as I’m only one part of the inclusivity committee, a whole group of dedicated and inspiring individuals I’m fortunate to work alongside: Jamie Knight, Kiera Sangster, Richard Mell, George Webber, Bex McKnight, Sandra Gruosso and John Wiens.

I gratefully and wholeheartedly share the award with each of them.

I am thankful to Lord Mayor Betty Disero and council not only for this honour, but also for creating a committee dedicated to inclusivity and for giving me an opportunity to be part of it.

Niki Walker
