I can't stand Steve Smith. HE'S NOT FUNNY, HIS WIFE WASN"T FUNNY, HIS VARIETY PROGRAMS SUCKED.
? Order of Canada? Is this a knighthood? What exactly does this entitle one to?
Didn't you hit the link?
I LOVE the Red Green show!
It still doesn't say what they get. Is it a knighthood, or something like it? Do they get a membership card that they can carry around the rest of their lives? A statue to memorialize the event? A big fat check from the taxpayers in recognition? The story leaves more questions for those of us that are not quite up to par on the Order of Canada.
It sounds like a knighthood when you call it an "Order", usually knighthoods would entitle people to certain things. I thought they were valid questions.
It's an award. You get a medal attached to a ribbon and your name in the paper and possibly some master "member" book at Rideau Hall. The "Order of Canada" itself gives the award, with the Queen and the Governor General acting as heads of the "Order". The advisory council decides who receives the award out of those nominated each year. It's like a snooty elist club. "I" didn't coin the name, they did.
I think that's it in a nutshell.
Hmmm... So basically it is a way to get two minutes of fame and a pat on the back.
Now, who is Red Green?
For some I think it's rediculous, for others, I think they are worthy of recognition for their contributions to Canada.

You'll notice one of P's old sigs on the home page.
Order of Canadas don't really mean anything anymore. It's like the Medal of Freedom.
