As the snowball grows…

The imperfect storm of Order of Canada medals returned in protest of the Morgentaler award expands by one more flake:

Frank Chauvin has become only the sixth person to return the Order of Canada medal since the federal government started handing them out in 1967.  [...]

SIX(6)!!!

All six people who have resigned their membership in the Order of Canada have done so to protest the inclusion of Morgentaler, who began performing abortions in 1968, a year before they became legal in Canada, if performed at a hospital.

Six for 6500… that’s almost 1/10 of 1%, baby!  An exclusive club to say the least.

But isn’t this guy recycled?  He already claimed he was returning his medal almost 2 years ago (July 11, 2008 to be exact), when he said:

“Yes, it’s definitely going,” Chauvin said Thursday from his Windsor home. “I don’t want to be painted with the same brush as Morgentaler. It’s definitely going back.”

… and somehow never got around to it.  But give him a break:  he’s an old guy and he runs on Old Guy Time.

None of this will stop Liesite from feverishly tooting its horn, even though it’s already “reported” on this guy as a returnee five(5) times.  But at least they’re no longer including medals that have been returned twice, or from beyond the grave.  And so it appears that the snowball of returned Order of Canada medals has succumbed to… shrinkage!

    That’s what I like about these assholes. They milk these things until the bitter end. I you are having a pool…I’ll take Labour Day, thank you…

    To return an Order of Canada is no small thing. The OOC undoubtedly represents a great source of pride to these people.

    You might mock them because you disagree with their stance on abortion, but I doubt that you have half of their commitment and integrity.

    SQ – I think his return has been “officially” accepted by the Gov-General at this point, so there is no more milking for this particular guy to do. As for the fetus fetishists in general, if I were them I’d be inclined to let this whole unsuccessful endeavour fade away.

    I doubt that you have half of their commitment and integrity.

    And you can say that why exactly? Do you know me?

    And what about the post-dead recipients, rabbit?

    Exactly how much commitment and integrity does it take for family members to fork over the OoC snowflake, in a petulant display of zygote zealotry?

    ‘rabbit’ doesn’t really them either but he has concern for you. Concern. Concern. Concern. ‘rabbit’ is always full of concern.

    err… ‘rabbit’ doesn’t really know them either…

    Good morrow, all!
    Rabbit: I’ll believe in their integrity and commitment when they adopt unwanted children, especially those with special needs.

    and I’ll believe their integrity and commitment when they support policies that do something about our appalling child poverty rate.
