Me, Mom, and Morgentaler

Order of Canada expert, Christopher McCreery, says of Henry Morgentaler (my emphasis):

"I didn't think they would ever appoint him, and I have spent 15 years studying this. In Canada, I can't think of anything more polarizing [than abortion].

"Sometimes I thought the advisory councils of previous years were waiting for him just to die so they didn't have to deal with the issue."

... But surely that would have been the most fitting way to honour the man and his work?
