Does Wayne Gretzky have this award? Someone in Brantford does.

Marsha Skrypuch is a Brantford writer who mostly writes historical novels for young readers. Her books include Enough, a kids' book about the Holodomor, the great Ukrainian famine of 1932-33, and the anthology of Ukrainian-Canadian writing, Kobzar's Children.

Well, Martha Skrypuch has just been named to the Order of Princess Olha, Third Class. It's the highest form of honour Ukraine bestows on foreign citizens, and she will be invested by President Yushchenko.
