Author and artist Douglas Coupland and developer Bob Rennie were among those presented the Order of British Columbia Tuesday in Victoria.

The order, called the most prestigious the province can give, is presented to those who have “dedicated themselves to bettering the lives of their fellow citizens” or have otherwise remarkable accomplishments.

Twenty-three recipients in total were selected for the honour, which has been handed out for 25 years.

Others recipients include Anmore politician Hal Weinberg, heart disease researcher John Cairns and philanthropist Tung Chan.
