Good News!

The council that admits people into the Order of Canada has begun the process of revoking the membership of former aboriginal leader David Ahenakew, who awaits a judge's ruling on a hate crime charge.

Lucie Brosseau said Ahenakew was sent a letter on June 30 informing him that the Order of Canada advisory council is considering his removal.

"The letter offered Mr. Ahenakew the option of resigning voluntarily from the order or of responding to the council," she said.

While I am not a fan of hate crimes legislation, I do think that removing an honour is perfectly appropriate when a person behaves dispicably.
