Three Resignations from the Order of Canada accepted by Governor General
The CBC reports that three resignations have been accepted by the Gov. Gen. from the Order of Canada. In a stretch to write an “unbiased” article that still slights pro-lifers, the CBC plays dumb at first:
No reasons were given for the three — René Racine, Jacqueline Richard and Cardinal Jean-Claude Turcotte — returning the awards.
However, Turcotte, 72, who is Montreal’s archbishop, told CBC’s French-language service last September that he was renouncing his honour to protest Dr. Henry Morgentaler’s appointment to the order.
No reasons were given… uh, except… the reasons he gave over 8 months ago. And Jacqueline Richard was reported to be returning her medal back in October citing Mother Theresa calling abortion “murder.” Somehow, I doubt it’s a mere coincidence that René Racine finds himself among the company of Richard and the Cardinal.
