Local Woman Named To The Order Of Canada

A Saint Johner being named to the Order of Canada today -- former senator Erminie J. Cohen receiving the honour for her work in eradicating poverty and increasing the level of adoption in the province.

Cohen tells CHSJ News she was humbled to be standing next to fellow Canadians who have a real passion for making the world a better place.

43 Canadians were named to the Order of Canada today -- notable names include actor Michael J. Fox and former federal cabinet minister Jake Epp, who introduced anti-smoking legislation and implemented a national AIDS strategy.
