Product description


"Christopher McCreery’s study of the Order of Canada – the first of its kind – is a delightful surprise: solidly researched, it is a charming and passionate defence of the honours system as it has evolved in Canada, and has the added pleasure of being written in an unpretentious, convincing voice."

(John A. Fraser, C.M., Master of Massey College, University of Toronto, and columnist for the 'Globe and Mail')

"This is easily the most comprehensive work that has been done on the order, describing it as it does, in careful detail, both the institution itself, its significance, and the history of its conception and evolution. Christopher McCreery casts light on the values embodied in Canada’s national persona, and how they have come to be expressed in its honours system."

(The late Olive Dickason, C.M., was Professor of History and Native Studies at University of Alberta, and Adjunct Professor of History at University of Ottawa)

About the Author
