NHL star Sidney Crosby honoured with Order of Nova Scotia award @NHLdotcom

HALIFAX - NHL star Sidney Crosby leads the list of Nova Scotians honoured Thursday with the Order of Nova Scotia.

Crosby, who recently turned 21, is the youngest person to receive the award which recognizes those who've made "significant contributions to the province and the country."

Premier Rodney MacDonald has also posthumously named Nora Madeline Bernard, a Mi'kmaq elder who died under tragic circumstances last year.

Community activists Ruth Miriam Goldbloom, Michael Dan MacNeil, and doctors Thomas John "Jock" Murray, former dean of Medicine at Dalhousie University, and Mahmood Ali Naqvi round out the list.

The recipients were selected by the Order of Nova Scotia Advisory Council from 68 completed nominations from across the province.

The 2008 recipients will be recognized at an investiture ceremony on Oct. 8, at Province House.
