Shania Gets Order of Canada ONLINE VIDEO + Photos

What exactly is this..?

http://www.newswire.ca/en/releases/...5/15/c5117.html

Governor General to invest 43 recipients into the Order of Canada

OTTAWA, Nov. 15 /CNW Telbec/ - Her Excellency the Right Honourable
Michaelle Jean, Governor General of Canada, will preside at the first
investiture ceremony of the Order of Canada of her mandate at Rideau Hall on
Friday, November 18, 2005, at 10:00 a.m. Please note that the investiture
ceremony is closed to the public.
The Governor General, who is Chancellor and Principal Companion of the
Order, will present 43 recipients with their insignia of membership. Eighteen
Officers and 25 Members will be invested.
The Order of Canada recognizes people who have made a difference to our
country. From local citizens to national and international personalities, all
Canadians are eligible for the Order of Canada, our country's highest honour
for lifetime achievement. Three different levels of membership honour people
whose accomplishments vary in degree and scope: Companion, Officer and Member.
The Order of Canada was established in 1967 to recognize outstanding
achievement and service in various fields of human endeavour. Appointments are
made on the recommendation of an advisory council, chaired by the Chief
Justice of Canada. The motto of the Order is Desiderantes meliorem patriam-
"They desire a better country."
A media schedule for the investiture ceremony (Annex A), a complete list
of recipients (Annex B) and a backgrounder (Annex C) are attached. To obtain
the citations for the recipients, please visit our website at: www.gg.ca.

Shania Twain, O.C.
Switzerland and Timmins, Ontario
Officer of the Order of Canada

The rags-to-riches story of Canadian superstar Shania Twain has become legendary. Although impoverished materially as a child, she was instilled with a strong sense of pride by her family. Even then, music played an important role in her day-to-day life. Today, she enjoys enormous success, yet she remains true to her roots. Dedicated to eliminating child hunger, she supports a number of food distribution agencies like food banks and breakfast programs in schools. From small-town Ontario to the pinnacle of the entertainment industry, her journey has inspired countless other emerging musicians.





Order of Canada Backgrounder

The Order of Canada was established in 1967 to recognize outstanding achievement and service in various fields of human endeavour. It is our country's highest honour for lifetime achievement.

Three different levels of membership—Companion, Officer and Member—honour people whose accomplishments vary in degree and scope.

Appointments are made on the recommendation of an advisory council, chaired by the Chief Justice of Canada. The Governor General is the Chancellor and Principal Companion of the Order.

Membership in the Advisory Council reflects the diversity and excellence in Canadian society. Certain Advisory Council members are appointed by virtue of their office; others are appointed to the Council for a fixed term to achieve a balanced representation of the various regions of the country.


The members of the Council are:

The Right Honourable Beverley McLachlin, P.C., Chief Justice of Canada (Chair)
The Honourable Thomas R. Berger, O.C.
Mrs. Ruth Miriam Goldbloom, O.C.
Mr. Richard Francis Haskayne, O.C.
Mr. Alex Himelfarb, Clerk of the Privy Council and Secretary to the Cabinet
Mr. Tom Jackson, O.C.
Miss Karen Kain, C.C., Chair, Canada Council for the Arts
Mrs. Judith A. LaRocque, C.V.O., Deputy Minister, Canadian Heritage
M. L. Jacques Ménard, O.C.
Mr. Gilles Paquet, C.M., President, the Royal Society of Canada
Ms. Bonnie M. Patterson, Chairman of the Board, Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada

Any group or individual is welcome to nominate deserving individuals as candidates for appointment.

Any Canadian may be nominated for the Order of Canada. The only exceptions are federal and provincial politicians and judges, who may not be appointed while holding office.

Non-Canadians may be considered for honorary appointments.

There are no posthumous awards.

It is ...I think it may be similar in nature to the Medal of Honor from the US Congress, although it is a loose type of comparison...

Medal of Honor is different. This may be equivalent to the US medal that is given to civilians, I can't recall what it is called.

The Presidential Medal of Freedom, the US highest civil award.....I think you are right it is more similar...

Congratulations to Shania. I wonder if the declaration will read Shania or Eilleen? She has earned this. In my opinion, this is a far greater honor than any CMA or other award. It makes me feel proud that someone I support would be so honored.

I agree!!!

The citation says it all....
The rags-to-riches story of Canadian superstar Shania Twain has become legendary. Although impoverished materially as a child, she was instilled with a strong sense of pride by her family. Even then, music played an important role in her day-to-day life. Today, she enjoys enormous success, yet she remains true to her roots. Dedicated to eliminating child hunger, she supports a number of food distribution agencies like food banks and breakfast programs in schools. From small-town Ontario to the pinnacle of the entertainment industry, her journey has inspired countless other emerging musicians.


That has to beat any "Clearly Manipulated Award" (CMA) they could give her.

Amazing Honour for Any Canadian

This is HUGE - trust me, I am Canadian.

To receive the 'Order of Canada' is like to get a medal of honour for representing your country. She will be thrilled.
Of course, I can't wait to see the photos.

I am seeing her on 'Cityline' on Thursday morning in Toronto.
whoooooooooo hooooooo Shania!
