Symbols of Mayoral Office Change Hands

The above picture taken at the Inaugural City Council meeting just a few short weeks ago captured the moment the symbols of the power of the office of Mayor of Nanaimo are passed from the outgoing Mayor to the incoming Mayor.

The Mayoral collar or Chain of Office was placed around the neck of incoming Mayor Bill McKay by outgoing Mayor John Ruttan.

What was not so obvious to those in attendance was the handing off of the official seal of the office of the Mayor of Nanaimo. Although I have never officially seen it I am offering up a graphic of what I presume it looks like.
