GORE BAY, Ont. – Manitoulin Group founder Doug Smith can add yet another honour to his evergrowing list of accolades with his recently announced appointment to the Order of Canada. The Order of Canada is the highest honour which can be given to a Canadian citizen.

The trucking pioneer is among 61 new members who will be presented with the honour in 2008.

Smith was chosen,”For his contributions as a business leader, philanthropist and champion of economic and community development in Northern Ontario.”

Smith is now entitled to add the prestigious “C. M.” designation following his name.
