Dan Lambert Volunteer of the Year 2017

Special mention must be made of the magnificent introduction given to the guest of honour, Mayor Peter Trent, by the extraordinary Derek Drummond. The audience roared with laughter as Derek summarized Mayor Trent’s many decades in office in Westmount.

Mayor Trent gave an interesting presentation on his perspectives of the development of Westmount and talked of the “two Westmounts” – distinct demographic areas. The document he presented can be seen by clicking here.

As usual with AGM guest speakers, the WMA presents a book that will be placed in the library in their honour. The book chosen for Mayor Trent is
Governing Cities Through Regions: Canadian and European Perspectives
by Roger Keil (Editor), Pierre Hamel (Editor), Julie-Anne Boudreau (Editor), Stefan Kipfer (Editor) – Wilfrid Laurier University Press (Dec 12 2016).
