Former Guess Who frontman Burton Cummings jokes that it's about time he got the Order of Canada, considering that bandmate Randy Bachman got identical recognition a year ago.
But Cummings says it was a pretty big deal to get the honour alongside such fellow Manitobans as rock icon Neil Young and former premier Gary Filmon.
All three on Wednesday were named officers of the order, which is the second of three levels of recognition bestowed by Gov. Gen. Michaëlle Jean.
The appointments also include honours for hockey great Mario Lemieux, who is elevated to officer, while former Montreal Canadiens captain Emile (Butch) Bouchard, who led the NHL team to four Stanley Cup titles, becomes a member.
Jean announced 32 new members and promoted 25 people, including Cummings, from member to officer.
