150 Labradorians are being honoured this week in recognition of their contributions to the Big Land.
In celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary, Labrador MP Yvonne Jones launched the Labradorians of Distinction awards this year.
Jones says the awards were created to honour Labradorians—past and present—who have contributed to the history and culture of Labrador.
She wanted to recognize both living and deceased Labradorians for their work, so an independent selection committee, working from a list of nominees, chose 150 names.
Jones says her work has given her a rare glimpse into what it means to be a Labradorian.
