Val Werier, a journalist who wrote unrelentingly as a champion of the environment long before it was fashionable, died April 21. He was 96.
In this photo taken on May 11, 2012, Val Werier proudly displays the Order of Canada medal he received in Ottawa in 2004. The Order of Canada is the centrepiece of Canada’s honours system and recognizes a lifetime of outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation. - JOE BRYKSA / WINNIPEG FREE PRESS FILES
