One of our own honoured by the National Assembly

Community volunteer and long-time employee of Suncor, Michel Forrest (center) received the Medal of the Quebec National Assembly for his exceptional community engagement from MNA Nicole Léger, accompanied by Opposition Leader, Pierre-Karl Péladeau.

Michel Forrest, respected community volunteer and long-time employee of Suncor, was honoured last August with the Medal of the Quebec National Assembly for his exceptional community engagement.

During a special ceremony in Pointe-aux-Trembles on Saturday, Aug. 29, 2015, Nicole Léger, Member of the National Assembly, together with Pierre-Karl Péladeau, the Opposition Leader, gave Michel this medal as a token of appreciation for his 28 years of social and human engagement with youth and the community.

“For his generosity, simplicity and humanism, Michel Forrest cultivates social solidarity around him. He is an outstanding ambassador of whom Suncor can be proud. He gives, as we say, more to his clients then they expect. Not only is he not counting his hours as a volunteer, but in fact he is not counting them any longer,” said Ms. Léger at the ceremony.

Maurice Vanier, a member of the Montreal refinery Liaison Citizens Industry Committee, was also honored at this special ceremony. The Medal of the Quebec National Assembly was given to him by Ms. Léger for his many accomplishments and for his leadership.

As a retired priest-worker, Maurice has worked for many years in different fields and for many community organizations. He has also been the Mayor of Pointe-aux-Trembles.

Congratulations Michel Forrest and Maurice Vanier.
