Elgin County Warden Mary French proclaimed the start of Pride Week in Elgin County today, hoisting the Pride flag at the County’s Administration Building in Central Elgin, alongside staff members, dignitaries, and community members.

“I would like to encourage all citizens to take pride in our diversity and celebrate our differences to help make our community a place that we can all be proud to call home,” said French. “As ambassadors and leaders, the County of Elgin strives for equality for all in Ontario, Canada, and even more broadly, the world.”
