Eleanor Wachtel: Officer of the Order of Canada

When I visited Eleanor earlier this month, she told me this great news, but in secrecy as it hadn’t been announced yet. But now it has. With all that the poor old CBC had endured this last while, how glorious that one of its most stalwart employees, recognized worldwide as a master at her craft – seeking out and pinning down the recalcitrant writer bird – has received such public acclaim.

Brava, Eleanor! Well-deserved.

  1. Congratulations to our beloved Writers & Company host @EleanorWachtel. She was elevated to Officer of the #OrderOfCanada!
