August 25, 2021:  Chancellor Alain Laurencelle stated, “A great and historic day for St. John Canada with the virtual investiture of 4 remarkable and worthy recipients: Dame Grand Cross, Mairi Arthur; Knight of Grace, The Right Honourable Richard Wagner, PC, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada; Dames of Justice, Their Honours Brenda Murphy, Lieutenant-Governor of New Brunswick and Eva Aariak, Commissioner of Nunavut.

Many thanks to our Lord Prior, Professor Mark Compton, Australia, for co-presiding over the ceremony and investing our new Dame Grand Cross and for his thoughtful remarks, putting everything into perspective for the recipients who are now members of a worldwide, caring St. John Family.

We were also honoured to have our Dean, Major-General Guy Chapdelaine, and Ms. Mary Wilman, Cultural Advisor from Nunavut bless the event, the recipients and the Order of St. John.”
