Order of Canada
I'm delighted to announce that Christopher Wiseman -- author of 36 Cornelian Avenue, published in 2008 by Signal Editions -- has been named to the Order of Canada "For his contributions to the development of creative writing as a poet and professor." What a wonderful way to ring in the new year. (In fine western-Canadian newspaper fashion, the Herald chose to run this item in the Sports section.)
