Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • The 150th Anniversary of Confederation is approaching in 2017, providing an opportunity to recognize and honour significant contributions and achievements by Canadians;
  • Medals have been issued previously in 1867, 1927, 1967, and 1992 and awarded to deserving Canadians to commemorate Confederation and the 60th, 100th, and 125th anniversaries of Confederation;
  • The Government of Canada has indicated it does not intend to proceed with plans to issue a commemorative medal as part of the celebrations of the 150th Anniversary of Confederation; and
  • Issuing a commemorative medal to mark the 150th Anniversary of Confederation would recognize the significant contributions and service of Canadians to their country in accordance with an important and established Canadian tradition.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to issue a commemorative medal as part of the celebrations of the 150th Anniversary of Confederation.
