MacMaster named to Order of Canada

By The Canadian Press

OTTAWA * Fiddler Natalie MacMaster, retired Maj.-Gen. Lewis MacKenzie, former newspaper columnist Michele Landsberg and sociologist Reginald Bibby are among 77 people named to the Order of Canada.

Gov. Gen. Michaelle Jean named 25 officers and 52 members to the order Monday.

Recipients will accept their insignia at a later ceremony, Jean said in a statement.

The Order of Canada was established in 1967 to recognize outstanding achievement and service in various fields of endeavour. It is Canada’s highest honour for lifetime achievement and has three different levels of membership: Companion, Officer and Member.

Three Nova Scotians were named officers to the Order of Canada. They include Constance R. Glube, Halifax, law; Norman Horrocks, Dartmouth, heritage; and Denis Stairs, Halifax, education.

Among the Nova Scotians named as members of the Order are MacMaster, Lakefield, Ont., and Troy, arts-music; Walter Ostrom, Indian Harbour, arts-visual; and Elizabeth Pacey, Halifax, heritage.
