The Governor-General of Canada announced on Friday 95 new honourees to the Order of Canada.
The hockey world, as often is the case, was well represented. Long time Hockey Night in Canada announcer Bob Cole, former player turned sexual abuse advocate Sheldon Kennedy and Rocket Richard biographer Charles Foran were all appointed as members.
