A Thunder Bay woman's volunteer work with refugees over the last 30 years is being recognized in a big way. Elizabeth McWeeny has been named as a member of the Order of Canada. McWeeny calls it an honour and an irony. She says it's heartening to see the Governor General naming a refugee advocate to the Order while the government of Canada is passing a "destructive" refugee law. McWeeny will receive the honour during a ceremony to be held at a later date.
