Our newest Order Of Canada recipients were presented with their medals in Ottawa today by Governor General Julie Payette, and they’re all Great White North entertainment legends.
Kingston Ontario’s Rob Baker, Johnny Fay, Paul Langlois, Gord Sinclair and the late Gord Downie were honored for their cultural contributions to the nation, and their work on social and environmental causes; Downie was previously honored at Rideau Hall in June for his efforts in raising awareness of Indigenous issues. Alex Trebek, a native of Sudbury, was made an Officer in recognition of his iconic television work, and his commitment to educational, environmental and humanitarian causes.
