Farhan Lalji honoured as New Westminster Citizen of the Year

Farhan Lalji honoured as New Westminster Citizen of the YearNothing much surprises Farhan Lalji. After all, as a reporter for TSN he’s been used to dealing with the unexpected on some of the world’s greatest sporting stages. But he was shocked when he was called up to the stage as the city’s citizen of the year at the New Westminster Chamber of Commerce’s Platinum Awards on Thursday.

When the list of eight nominees came out, Lalji didn’t think he had a chance. It was an “esteemed group” that included his neighbour Kenneth Williams, who has been a pillar in the community for decades.

“I thought there’s no way, with his longevity, there’s no way I was going to get it,” said Lalji, head coach of the New Westminster Hyacks high school football team and president of Royal City Hyacks minor football club.
