Latest Order of Canada appointments include two New Brunswickers

A pair of New Brunswickers are among 105 new appointments to the Order of Canada.

Patricia "Patsy" Gallant from Campbellton and Jean-Claude Savoie from Saint-Quentin are two of the 82 new Members.

Governor General Julie Payette also named three Companions and twenty Officers.

Gallant is being honoured "for her contributions to pop music over half a century and for her dedication to social causes."

The news release says Savoie, also a member of the Order of New Brunswick, has been named a Member "for his drive and continuous search for innovation as an entrepreneur in the forestry sector and wood processing industry."

Recipients will be invited to accept their insignia at a ceremony to be held at a later date.
