"Feminist Judy Rebick said "For me, it's got a symbolic importance that it was announced on Canada Day.""

If Judy Rebick thinks it was important, it is obvious the Order of Canada has become a joke, I would send back my Order of Canada if I had one. ;)

Where do you apply for an Order of Canada?

You don't have to British to get ab OBE. Do you have to be Canadian to get an Order of Canada?

There are honorary appointments for non-Canadians.
