This is one of my favourite photos of my investiture into the Order of Ontario on June 28.
From the left: Margo Timmins, who is the lead singer of the well-known rock group Cowboy Junkies; yours truly; Lisa LaFlamme, who is the number one national news anchor in Canada; Greta Hodgkinson, who is a prima ballerina with the National Ballet of Canada and international diva; and Donovan Bailey, an Olympic gold-medal winner in the 100-yard dash and world champion in the same event. They each also have foundations in which they are doing humanitarian work at home and abroad.
The Chief Justice of Ontario chairs the Advisory Council which selects those to be invested. This year the 26 honourees were chosen from over 500 nominees.
I share this with you to celebrate the wonderful support that I have had from so many colleagues and friends over the years which has made this marvelous recognition possible.
All best wishes,
Peter A. Adamson, OOnt, MD, FRCSC, FACS
