A good citizen and an environmental hero

Ruth Stewart applauded for her clean-up efforts and entertaining letter.

Editor: Ruth Stewart’s letter titled ‘Cleaning up the roadside was an education’ in the May 28 edition of The Times.

It was not only a joy to read but a lesson in how to be a good citizen and an excellent writer.  She is not only highly entertaining in her description of her task, but shows us all her outstanding qualities as a person concerned about the environment.

I am hereby nominating Ruth as a possible citizen of the year in Langley and  am naming her as a worthy recipient of MP Mark Warawa’s quest for Langley’s Environmental Hero for 2013. Well done Ruth, and thank you.

Mike Harvey,


Editor’s note — The nomination deadline for the Environmental Hero award has been extended to June 7. See markwarawa.com for details.
