Syd­ney busi­ness­man Ch­ernin ap­pointed to Or­der of Canada

Cape Breton Post - - CAPE BRETON -

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.
