Three lawyers newest Order of Canada membersWritten by Glenn Kauth Monday, 08 July 2013
|Nathalie Des Rosiers|
The new appointees include Nathalie Des Rosiers, Paul Cavalluzzo, and Edward Goldenberg. Gov. Gen. David Johnston is honouring Des Rosiers and Cavalluzzo for their accomplishments in the legal field and Bennett Jones LLP’s Goldenberg for public service. All three will become members of the order while Murray Costello, who became a lawyer following a career as a professional hockey player and went on to serve as president of Hockey Canada, becomes an officer for his contributions to sport in Canada.
Cavalluzzo also joined the Order of Ontario last year and now receives the federal honour for his dedication to the pursuit of social justice in Canada. A senior partner at Cavalluzzo Shilton McIntyre Cornish LLP, he’s a leading constitutional, labour, and administrative lawyer who previously acted as lead counsel at the Maher Arar and Walkerton inquiries. More recently, the federal minister of justice appointed him to act as a special advocate in security certificate cases.
Goldenberg, meanwhile, has been a leading figure in political circles. Besides his work on the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, he was senior policy adviser to former prime minister Jean Chrétien before becoming his chief of staff in 2003. He now has a corporate practice advising clients on governance, public policy, and government relations at Bennett Jones.
While a member of the legal profession, Costello made his biggest mark in hockey. After a career playing for the Boston Bruins, Calgary Blackhawks, and Detroit Red Wings, he became a lawyer and went on to serve in a number of roles with various hockey organizations. He joins the order for his contributions to the development of hockey in Canada, in particular to Canada’s national junior and women’s teams.
