Several Canadian artists were inducted into the Order of Canada this morning.
Three prominent artists are becoming officers in the Order: filmmaker Deepa Mehta, visual artist and writer Douglas Coupland, and rockabilly singer Ronnie Hawkins.
Montreal’s Walter Boudreau becomes a member of the Order in recognition of his work in contemporary music. He’ll be joined by fellow Montrealler Jacques Lacombe, who is currently music director of the Trois-Rivieres and New Jersey Symphony Orchestras.
