Michael Gold­bloom, C.M., Prin­ci­pal and Vice-Chan­cel­lor of Bishop’s Univer­sity, was in­vested as Mem­ber of the Or­der of Canada by His Ex­cel­lency the Right Hon­ourable David John­ston, Gov­er­nor Gen­eral of Canada, at an in­vesti­ture cer­e­mony held to­day at Rideau Hall, in Ot­tawa.

The hon­our was be­stowed on Mr. Gold­bloom for his ded­i­ca­tion to the peo- ple and city of Mon­tréal as well as for his com­pas­sion and diplo­macy which helped foster lin­guis­tic du­al­ity in Mon­tréal and through­out Que­bec.

Mr. Gold­bloom has had an ex­em­plary record of ser­vice to Canada through his lead­er­ship of sev­eral im­por­tant or­gan­i­sa­tions in­clud­ing Al­liance Que­bec, the Ville Marie So­cial Cen­tre, the YMCA’s of Que­bec, The Mon­treal Gazette, the Toronto Star and Bishop’s Univer­sity.

Its motto is DESIDER­ANTES ME­LIOREM PA­TRIAM (They de­sire a bet­ter coun­try).
