Order of BC for Oppal

Retired Supreme Court and Court of Appeal judge Wally Oppal is among 16 people who are being appointed to the Order of British Columbia.

The province says Oppal has dedicated his life to public service as an elected official and in the legal profession, focusing his efforts on improving the lives of society's most vulnerable people.

Others being honoured include legendary Vancouver blues singer, actor and philanthropist Jim Byrnes, human rights advocate Jennifer Wade and Paralympian Gary Birch.

Lawyer Joseph Arvay of Victoria is also on the list, credited with advancing civil liberties and defending many life-saving cases before the Supreme Court of Canada.
