Herb Gray, IJC Chair appointed Companion of Canada
On August 5, 2003, Her Excellency the Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson, Governor General of Canada, announced new appointments to the Order of Canada. Among those receiving appointments was the Canadian Chair of the International Joint Commission, the Right Honourable Herb Gray, QC, PC, and now a Companion of Canada (CC).
The Order of Canada was established in 1967 to recognize outstanding achievement and service in various fields of human endeavour. It is Canada's highest honour for lifetime achievement. Three different levels of membership - Companion, Officer and Member - honour people whose accomplishments vary in degree and scope.
The Great Lakes community can meet the Right Hourourable Herb Gray at the International Joint Commission's 2003 Great Lakes Conference and Biennial Meeting to be held September 19-20 on the beautiful University of Michigan campus in Ann Arbor. The IJC is planning two full days of workshops on some of the most pressing issues facing the Great Lakes today, reports from Great Lakes Advisory Boards, public comment and discussion, and a special session on "Restoring the Greatness." During this session, several groups with visions and restoration plans for the Great Lakes will present their plans during a professionally moderated session of information and public discussion. This is an incredible opportunity to have your views heard by the most senior and respected leaders in the basin.
