Created in 1967 during the country's centennial year, the Order of Canada recognizes Canadians for a lifetime of outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation.Anyone would certainly agree that Mario, the walking legend, has embodied that very description in both his home country and his adopted home in Pittsburgh.
Even after all the accolades, honors, and titles that Mario has been given, it amazes me at just how much he takes it in stride with humility. He's a man who has been able to pull off a miracle or two and now a whole nation has been able to thank him.
