OTTAWA - Sheldon Kennedy says being the recipient of one of the countrys top honours can serve as a beacon to lead countless other children out of the darkness of child abuse. Jason Williams Jersey .The 45-year-old former NHLer, one of Canadas most vocal advocates of child abuse, is one of 95 admissions and promotions to the Order of Canada announced Friday.For me, Im not doing this work to win awards for Sheldon Kennedy. Im doing this work because I understand the damage that this crime has on our kids, he said.And its killing our kids.The list of those being honoured include Richard Pound, the Montreal lawyer who has served twice as a vice-president of the International Olympic Committee and is also the former president of the World Anti-Doping Agency. Pound was elevated to the highest level of the order, a companion.Ive never thought it is right that you should get cheated out of a result because somebody is deliberately breaking the rules and taking doping substances, said Pound.Its not right, and it destroys a lot of the value of sports for everybody who plays fair and gets beaten for having done what everyone promised to do, which is to play fair.Among those appointed officers, the second highest rank, were Mark Carney, the former Bank of Canada governor who took the same post at the Bank of England in 2013, and Peter Milliken, the longest serving Speaker of the House of Commons from 2001 to 2011.The husband and wife musician team of Chantal Kreviazuk and Raine Maida, were among 79 new additions to the members category. Kreviazuk and Maida have been involved in various humanitarian causes throughout their careers, taking up issues including climate change, mental health and international child poverty.Some of the other new members include:— Tim Cook, the military historian and award-winning author who formerly served as the director of research at the Canadian War Museum.— Brenda Clark, the illustrator behind the popular childrens book series Franklin the Turtle.— Bill Graham, the former Liberal minister of foreign affairs and national defence who also served as interim leader of the Liberal Party in 2006.— Lawyer Michael Meighen, the grandson of former Canadian prime minister Arthur Meighen, who was appointed to the Senate in 1990 by his longtime friend and former prime minister Brian Mulroney and retired from the upper chamber in 2012.— Author and journalist Charles Foran and science reporter Peter Calamai, who has worked for years to foster literacy.Kennedy, who has opened an advocacy centre in Calgary to help abused children, said he still cant believe he has joined such a vaunted club as the Order of Canada. But he said he hopes it inspires other victims to come forward and seek help.For these issues to represented and understood and to be recognized at this level, to me, is absolutely huge, said Kennedy, a 10-year-NHL veteran.Kennedy went on to become a leading voice for sexual abuse victims following his own experience being abused by his coach, Graham James, for five years during his time as a junior hockey player.My message is really about hope, and that youre not alone. Our country is a lot more understanding of these issues today than we were even 10 years ago, and to me that should give people confidence to come forward, he said.In the past year, Kennedy said his centre has done 2,000 investigations into abuse allegations from children seeking help. One-third of those under age 12 were showing signs of suicidal ideation, sexualized behaviour, addiction issues, violence, mental health issues.And when they get up over 15, over half are presenting all of the above. To me, these issues, we need to understand the damage this crime has.The Order of Canada was established in 1967, the countrys centennial year, to recognize outstanding achievement, dedication to community and service to the nation. More than 6,000 Canadians from all walks of life have been invested with the Order since then.The new recipients will be given their insignia in a ceremony at a later date. Brandon Clarke Jersey . Ilonen birdied five of his closing seven holes in superb scoring conditions to end the day with a two-shot lead on the Fota Island course. Ilonen had just 26 putts on the occasion of his 300th European Tour event. Shareef Abdur-Rahim Jersey . The 17-time Grand Slam champion, who lose three straight finals in Monte Carlo to Rafael Nadal from 2006-08, has not played in the tournament since 2011, when he lost to Jurgen Melzer in the quarterfinals. https://www.cheapgrizzlies.com/844p-jaren-jackson-jersey-grizzlies.html . Jamies number grades given are out of five, with five being the best mark. Jonathan Quick, Los Angeles Kings (3) - Early goal against was on the power play.ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Corey Perry has made a living by scoring timely goals. Perry scored his NHL-leading eighth winner of the season with 1.3 seconds on the clock in overtime, giving the Anaheim Ducks a come-from-behind 4-3 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday night. The 2011 MVP has a league-best 30 winning goals since the start of the 2010-11 season. "You could see it on his face every time he came to the bench. He was getting so frustrated," coach Bruce Boudreau said. "The last game and this game, he was getting so many good looks. Hopefully thatll break the ice and hell do what he normally does." The Ducks went on the power play at 3:54 of overtime when defenceman Kevin Bieksa was called for hooking. Ryan Getzlaf passed the puck to Perry from the line for a shot that beat rookie goalie Eddie Lack for his team-high 23rd goal. "I got the monkey off my back," Perry said. "I saw a couple seconds on the clock, yelled for the puck going to the net and knew I had to shoot right away. It probably fooled him and found a way to go in." The Ducks, off to a franchise-best 31-8-5 start and 17-0-2 at Honda Center, are the only team without a regulation loss at home. Anaheim is also the third club to open a season with a home point streak of 19 or more games, joining San Jose (2008-09) and Philadelphia (1979-80). The Ducks have won 13 of 14 overall since losing back-to-back shootouts against San Jose and Los Angeles. Bonino tied it with 1:27 left in regulation. Saku Koivu and Matt Beleskey scored in the second, and Jonas Hiller stopped 17 shots to extend his club-record and career-best winning streak to 11. Ryan Kesler and Henrik Sedin scored power play goals 2 minutes apart in the first, and Bieksa scored in the third for the Canucks. Lack made a career-high 45 saves, one night after Roberto Luongo had 45 in a loss to Los Angeles in his return following a three-game absence with a groin injury. "He brought it to another level tonight," Canucks coach John Tortorella said. "You try to find some good stuff (from a game like this), and that is certainly some real good stuff there." Luongo sat out, and Lacks backup was 43-year-old Rob Laurie -- who has never appeared in an NHL game and hasnt played professionally since 2002. The Southern California resident was summoned on an emergency basis. The Canucks also lost both ends of a Los-Angeles-Anaheim back-to-back set on Nov. 9-10. "You play good teams like Anaheim and L. Tyus Jones Jersey. A. and you learn a lot of lessons," defenceman Dan Hamhuis said. "They expose things in your game that are not solid. We saw that in L.A., and we talked about that this morning. "Both games we had early leads and then we sat back. That is the biggest thing as to why we are giving up so many shots. We are playing not to lose, and we have to start playing to win at all times." Anaheim outshot Vancouver 40-7 over the second and third periods. Kyle Palmieri blocked Jason Garrisons one-timer from just inside the Anaheim line and carried the puck into the Vancouver zone, where he made a backhanded pass from the left circle into the slot. Beleskey backhanded it past Lack at 16:38 of the second to make it 2-all. The Canucks regained the lead when Bieksas wrist shot from just inside the blue line got past a screened Hiller 66 seconds into the third. But the Ducks pulled even again as Daniel Winnik stole Garrisons attempted clearing pass and fed Bonino for the goal. "Weve beaten ourselves a little bit," Tortorella said. "Weve had a lot of struggles in a lot of different areas the past couple of games. We have to keep our heads, and keep on working at our game." Vancouver, 2 for 23 on the power play over its previous eight games, took a 1-0 lead 9:40 in with Keslers 17th goal, scored one minute after Perry tripped Jannik Hansen. The Ducks were short-handed again less than a minute later after a penalty for too many men on the ice. Sedin scored his 10th goal on a deflection of Garrisons shot. "You cant do that against good teams. But we never backed down and we kept grinding," Perry said. "Those things are what character teams are made of. Were going to keep coming at you." The Canucks, who began the day with the best penalty-killing percentage in the league at 89.4, thwarted Anaheims first two power plays before Perrys winner. The Ducks are 2 for 34 over their last 11 games, including a season-worst 0 for 8 in Fridays win over Edmonton. NOTES: Perry has 44 points through 44 games. He had 15 goals and 36 points in the 44 games he played last season. ... Vancouver RW Zack Kassian left the game for good at 4:11 of the second period after teammate Tom Sestito caught him in the face with his skate while they were trying to get the puck away from Anaheim D Hampus Lindholm deep in the Ducks zone. ... Hiller has allowed 23 goals on 268 shots and given up more than two in a game only twice during his winning streak. ' ' '
