More honours for Louie

The Town of Oliver is honouring Chief Clarence Louie of the Osoyoos Indian Band with the “Freedom of the Municipality.”

The honour is for citizens outstanding contributions to the community, and has only been granted three times in the history of the Town of Oliver.

Louie is being recognized for his significant contribution to the development and growth of greater Oliver.

“This is the highest honour the municipality can give an individual,” said Mayor Ron Hovanes. “This award comes with recognition and thanks for the tremendous contribution that Chief Louie has made to our community.”

Those who hold the Freedom of the Municipality may vote in Oliver elections no matter where they live, and whether or not they own real estate in the Town. Past recipients include Senator Ross Fitzpatrick, George Bowering and Bill Barisoff.

An invite-only ceremony is planned for September at the Frank Venable Theatre.

Louie was named to the Order of Canada late last year.
