Order of Canada medal: high honor that not all accept

Two Canadian nuns who work in health care and the pro-life founder of Canada’s Reform Party were among people honored last month with the Order of Canada medal, the nation’s highest civilian honor.

The Western Catholic Reporter in Edmonton, Alberta, has the story reporting that the two nuns accepted the award despite the recent controversy over the medal after abortion doctor Henry Morgentaler was named a recipient last July. Several recipients, including Montreal Cardinal Jean-Claude Turcotte, returned their awards in protest.
