Olivia Walker-Edwards, BDRA recognised in Ontario Legislature

Burlington’s MPP, Eleanor McMahon, has provided further recognition of Olivia Walker-Edward’s initiative in organising the Walk for Refugees on January 17th.

Ms McMahon noted that “Working in partnership with the Burlington Downtown Refugee Alliance, a coalition spearheaded by St. Luke’s Anglican Church and made up of faith-based groups, community organizations, city hall staff, local businesses and Burlington residents, Olivia helped to raise over $5,000 to support a privately sponsored Syrian family.”

She continued, “Olivia’s efforts to make this walk happen are proof that one person, no matter what their age, can make a difference in the lives of others.”

Congratulations Olivia on bringing credit to our community at a national and provincial level!
