  1. Congratulations to Lou! Very much deserved and very happy to see him getting the recognition he has more than earned.

    And thanks to Cst Avoine for her service in general and for helping some of Morinville’s youngest citizens be more safe. Morinville is very lucky to have such professional and dedicated police service personnel.
