Three return Order of Canada

Filed under: Pastoral — Thomas @ 23:23

It was announced today that three Montrealers have returned their Order of Canada and their resignations were accepted by Gov. Gen. Michaëlle Jean. In the CBC story it only focusses on one of those three, Cardinal Jean-Claude Turcotte, who returned his award because Morgentaler received the same reward last year for “his services to women and for leadership in the fields of humanism and civil liberties.” I don’t know of anyone in the history of Canada that has done more than Morgentaler to destroy women, humanity and civil liberties for the unborn so he certainly deserves some kind of recognition. However, I think that the CBC is unduly focussing on the Catholic in this case as it barely mentions astronomer René Racine and pianist and conductor Jacqueline Richard. As a result the related comments on CBC are largely focussed on attacking the Roman Catholic church. Should they not mention all three equally and then folks can attack astronomy and orchestras with the same vehemence?
