Some Indigenous leaders, known for criticizing the government, received the country’s highest honour Thursday.

Matthew Coon Come, a residential school survivor, and Beverley Jacobs, an activist, were surprised they were recognized with an Order of Canada.

Okanese First Nation Chief Marie-Anne Day Walker-Pelletier was also among the recipients.
