His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, announced 100 new appointments to the Order of Canada just before the start of the new year.

Peter Dalglish (LLB’83, LLD’08) is among the 75 new Members of the Order (C.M.) to receive one of Canada’s highest honours. Residing in London, Ont., Dalglish was appointed “for his efforts to alleviate child poverty worldwide, notably by establishing and leading Street Kids International.”

Dalglish studied at Dalhousie Law School (now the Schulich School of Law) and earned the law school’s Weldon Award for Unselfish Public Service in 1989 “for his creative and constructive efforts in international humanitarian relief efforts in the Third World.” He also received an honorary degree from the university in 2008 “for his visionary work helping children around the world.”

“I am delighted to recognize these new recipients of the Order of Canada in this milestone year,” said the Governor General in a press release. “Besides marking Canada’s 150th anniversary, 2017 marks the 50thanniversary of the Order. So let’s be inspired by the examples set by these remarkable Canadians and use this occasion to build a smarter and more caring country in which every individual can succeed to the greatest extent possible.”

    “Our preliminary investigation has found that he has been targeting children from poor financial backgrounds and sexually abusing them. By promising the family members that he would educate their children, take them abroad and also provide them jobs after they finish their education, he had been sexually abusing children. Given his age and his high profile in the humanitarian sector, he would easily win trust of the family members and later abuse their children,” DIG Karki elaborated.

    Given his recent legal troubles in Nepal, I’m hoping the university and the Order of Canada toss him to the curb.

    Not so much fun when you’re celebrated Liberal elites turn out to be pedophiles, eh?
    Maybe you should pay more attention to who people are and not just what party they belong to.
