Susan Forbes Hanson points us to a delightful profile of Kaldor and her reaction to the award.

“On Wednesday morning, two things happened to Connie Kaldor — one resounding, the other quiet. First, the former Regina resident was officially named a member of the Order of Canada for her achievements in folk singing and writing. Second, on the way to dropping her sons off at school, the third line of the song she’s been writing came to her.”
