Conrad Black, convict. Gave up his Canadian citizenship. Plundered a newspaper empire. Rich.
Keeps his Order of Canada.
Steve Fonyo, convict. Proud Canadian. Raised $13 million for charity. Poor.
Stripped of his medal.
Nice to see the Governor-General keeping the lower orders in their place. But to avoid future unpleasantness, why not just institute a property qualification for the OoC?
