Opera director Robert Lepage promotedto CC

Robert Lepage, known, in opera circles at least, for his love of all operas dark and gloomy (Bluebeard and Erwartung at the COC, Nineteen-Eighty-Four at Covent Garden, etc.) just got a promotion yesterday. He's now a Companion of the Order of Canada -the highest rank in the membership. There are only 165 Companions allowed to be living at any given time (a sentence that I just re-read.... man that's ominous...) Congratulations to Robert! Your weird, weird vision has done great things.
