“I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Cambridge native Gord Renwick, who was selected as a recipient of the Order of Hockey in Canada. The Order of Hockey in Canada recognizes individuals that have played prominent roles in developing and growing the game in Canada. Mr. Renwick is being inducted this year alongside Jean Beliveau, Cassie Campbell-Pascall, Gordie Howe, and Wayne Gretzky   

Mr. Renwick not only was one of the original builders of the Galt Hornets senior hockey organization, but was also President of the Hornets, during which time the Hornets won two Allan Cups. Mr. Renwick was also instrumental in establishing the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association (CAHA), now Hockey Canada, in the International Ice Hockey Federation. He also served as president of the CAHA, and as a board member and vice-president of the IIHF.

This honour is well deserved and further illustrates the deep roots that the game of hockey has in our communities of Cambridge and North Dumfries.”
