Maclean’s managing editor Bob Lewis accepts Honourable Mention Award from Governor General Roméo LeBlanc.
The magazine received the award for its coverage of the malaise in the Canadian military including stories of sexual harassment, shoddy equipment, and abuse in the ranks.
The award was presented during a ceremony held at Rideau Hall, Ottawa, April 19, 1999.
Each year, the Governor General has honoured Michener Award and Fellowship winners at a Government House ceremony. Each of Roland Michener’s successors has graciously adopted and maintained a personal interest in the Michener Awards Foundation and its commitment to Canadian journalism excellence.
