Queens Mayor Wins Tourism Ambassador Award

He's worn many hats, now there's a new feather to add. Region of Queens Mayor John Leefe has been honoured with the Ambassador award by the Tourism Industry Association of Nova Scotia. The Ambassador award is presented each year to a recipient who has impacted Tourism on a national or international basis. As the only municipal leader to consistently participate in industry events, Mayor Leefe was this year’s recipient. Fostering event development while championing the history and culture of the area, the Mayor has always been a strong advocate for the industry in the Region of Queens Municipality. Throughout his career as teacher, MLA and Mayor, Mayor Leefe has recognized the power of tourism and its impact on the economy.
