Dozens of Albertans received the Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers on Monday, including Global Edmonton’s Gord Steinke, from the Governor General of Canada. The award recognizes the exceptional volunteer achievements of Canadians.
“These hardworking citizens are focused on building strong, caring and vibrant communities that allow all members to thrive,” Alberta’s Lt.-Gov. Lois Mitchell said. “In this special birthday year for our country, it’s a particular pleasure to recognize some of the people who embody the best of what it means to be Canadian.”
Steinke was recognized for his countless hours spent volunteering in the community over the past quarter century. Some of his biggest accolades come from his work as Honourary Lieutenant-Colonel of the 15 Edmonton Field Ambulance, part of the 41st Canadian Brigade Group, the TELUS Motorcycle Ride for Dad and his work with the Kids with Cancer Society.
