Sister Auréa Cormier, a well-known anti-poverty activist, will be among the first recipients of the Order of Moncton. Cormier is an active member of the Common Front for Social Justice.
The Order of Moncton is being awarded to four people who make the City of Moncton a better place to live. Cormier and the three other recipients, Claudette Bradshaw, Larry Nelson and Ralph Wilson Black, will be recognized at a ceremony at Moncton City Hall in early December.
Tracy Glynn is on the NB Media Co-op editorial board.
