Though the honour has not yet officially been given out, Dame of Justice Hilary Weston will be given an honourary doctorate from Concordia University in Montreal at their convocation services on 17 November. Ms Weston was made a Dame of Justice on the occasion of her appointment as 26th Lieutenant-Governor of Ontario in 1997. In the Priory of Canada, Lieutenant-Governors are made Vice-Priors of the Order in their respective provinces. Though she is no longer Lieutenant-Governor, Ms Weston is still a Dame of Justice and we congratulate her on this well-deserved honour.
