Queen’s University professor emeritus and Nobel Laureate Arthur McDonald was formally presented with the Order of Ontario on June 9th, 2016. Here is what he said,

It is an honour for the SNO Collaboration and myself to be recognized in this way. We hope that our success will lead to greater international recognition of Canada and Ontario as locations where world-class research can be accomplished and will also inspire young Canadians to follow careers in science and technology.

Dr. McDonald was named the co-recipient of the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physics for his research with the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) collaboration and was also the recipient of the 2016 Breakthrough Prize in Physics.
