The city council formally thanked Lori Slater for the work she has done in the community to make it more accessible for people who are not able-bodied.
Slater helped create the Mayor’s Disability Advisory Committee, and had been on the committee since it was founded in 2006.
She continues to work as Peer Program Coordinator with Spinal Cord Injury BC.
Slater was also awarded the Diamond Jubilee Medal in 2012, and she is a recipient of the prestigious “Mayors Choice Award of Excellence.”
“We look forward to the opportunity to collaborate and work together in the future,” wrote Mayor Ackerman in a letter of gratitude. “Thank you again for all your dedication and efforts.”
