Peter Perry Award
Peter Perry was a founder of the Town of Whitby; an astute businessman and truly dedicated to his community. He served as an elected representative to the Parliament of Upper Canada, as Whitby’s Township representative to the Home District Council, and was instrumental in the formation of Ontario County with Whitby as the County Town. The 2017 Peter Perry winner is Trevor Bardens.
It is this spirit, enthusiasm and dedication to the community that the WCC is proud to recognize today. Many people in our community give countless hours to make the Town of Whitby a better place.
