Sydney businessman Chernin appointed to Order of Canada
It will be a Canada Day to remember for Martin Chernin.
The longtime Sydney businessman has been appointed to the Order of Canada.
Chernin is one of four Nova Scotians among the 100 prominent Canadians given the prestigious honour this year.
The other Nova Scotians are Bill Black, a one- time candi- date for the leadership of the provincial Progressive Conservative Party, Margaret Fountain, a supporter of the arts, and Susan Sherwin for her work in feminist bioethics.
The Order of Canada was established on Canada’s 100th birthday in 1967 to recognize outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation.
Since then, more than 6,000 Canadians have been named to the order.
