"Rene's impact on our community has been significant," said MP Alexander. "It was my honour to present him with the Diamond Jubilee Medal."
The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal is a tangible way for Canada to honour Her Majesty for her service to this country. At the same time, it serves to honour significant contributions and achievements by Canadians.
For decades, Rene has been an active member of our community, volunteering on boards, committees and fundraisers to help improve the quality of life in our community.

Very active with the Ajax Rotary Club, Rene is a former president and a Paul Harris Award recipient. Rene has also volunteered significant time with Scouts Canada, including serving as District Commissioner from 1978-1980. Rene served as a member of Ajax Town Council for three terms and was elected as Member of Parliament for the then-named local riding of "Ontario". A father and grandfather, Rene is also president of the Ajax-based firm, Con-Test.
