VICTORIA – Fourteen exceptional people will be appointed to the Order of British Columbia, the province’s highest form of recognition, including Prince George’s Dr. Nadine Rena Caron.
“As representative of the Crown in British Columbia and as chancellor of the Order of British Columbia, it is my great honour to welcome 14 new members to the order,” said Janet Austin, lieutenant governor of British Columbia and chancellor of the Order of British Columbia, in a news release. “I share these congratulations with gratitude to these incredible individuals who have done so much to enrich their communities. Their leadership and generous service has enhanced the lives of so many British Columbians and has contributed to shaping a better future for all residents of our province.”
