Thread: Walter Gretzky awarded the rank of Member in the Order of Canada

    Walter Gretzky awarded the rank of Member in the Order of Canada

    why?

    what are his accomplishments? other than fathering an overated famous son.

    Sad to see Canada catching the Chicago bug by selling awards to the highest bidder. I remember when member in the Order of Canada was a prestigious award. Nowadays , it is a shoty thing less equal in value than earning a doctorate honorary degree.


    Next year winner: Seth Rogen's father

    No doubt about Wayne's greatness... plus he's a nice guy... was very accommodating one time for myself and my son...

    but not sure that qualifies his father/early coach as recipient...

    Exactly !!!!

    p.s.: I never said Wayne was useless. I said he was overrated. Marc Messieur was as good if not better. No rings to Wayne after he quit on the Edmonton oilers.

    p.s. # 2: seth rogen is the current hollywood's flavor of the mounth. A canadian actor from Vancouver. who appeared in such flicks as '40 years virgin', 'knocked up', 'zack and mary', etc.
