Former CTV nationwide information anchor Lisa LaFlamme is among the luminaries set to be invested into the Order of Canada.
Gov. Gen. Mary Simon will beautify 44 appointees at a ceremony at Rideau Hall this morning.
LaFlamme was named an officer of the order in 2019.
A quotation for her investiture hails LaFlamme as one of Canada’s most recognizable journalists and an “inspirational position model in information broadcasting.”
LaFlamme’s abrupt dismissal from CTV’s flagship newscast in August prompted shock and concern that she could have been ousted due to her look, which Bell Media has denied.
Other honourees anticipated to obtain their insignia at present embrace brewer John Sleeman, Cirque du Soleil co-founder Gilles Ste-Croix and race automobile driver Ron Fellows.
