The Order of Canada!!

Cool!! Somebody I grew up with is getting the Order of Canada. Look way down toward the bottom of the list. Lorne Scott, Indian Head, Saskatchewan, Environment

Way to go, Lorne!!!

Lorne's mother was a good friend of my mother and his aunt was my mother's bridesmaid. His family and mine spent many a Sunday together either at our place or theirs eating the traditional Sunday roast "whatever" dinner. Lorne was involved in preserving nature since he was a kid. He was a shy, awkward farm boy who surprised us all by actually becoming a member of the provincial legislature and serving as a cabinet minister. We were honoured that he agreed to deliver the eulogy at our mother's funeral.
