Medal de­tec­tor

NOW Magazine - Anniversary special - - Toronto Symphony Orchestra -

On June 6, 1991, NOW breaks the story that Metro Toronto po­lice chief Wil­liam McCor­mack is not en­ti­tled to wear the war medals he seems in­tent on parad­ing. In a terse in­ter­view, McCor­mack re­sponds that he right­fully wears the dec­o­ra­tions awarded to those who fought North Korea and China be­tween 1950 and 1953. He served on the ship Em­pire Test in the mer­chant marines, fer­ry­ing troops to Pu­san in 1952, he tells NOW. But alas for the chief, the Bri­tish depart­ment of trans­port de­clares the ship never made it to Korea.
