A Toronto celebrity chef, two athletes, a revered television actor and a prominent radio broadcaster were granted one of Canada’s highest civilian honours on Thursday when they were named to the Order of Canada.

Gov. Gen. David Johnston announced 54 new recipients of the order.

Honourees included Toronto-based chef Jamie Kennedy, a prominent leader in the city’s culinary scene who has opened multiple successful restaurants. He was named a member of the order — the lowest rank — for his promotion of local, organically grown food.

Also recognized were former NHL player Trevor Linden, tennis champion Daniel Nestor, veteran actor Eric Peterson and long-time CBC broadcaster Shelagh Rogers.
