The Good News Service is created by Murray Thomson, a long time member of Canadian Pugwash, now serving on the Executive Committee. He is also a major contributor to the Canadian's for a Nuclear Weapons Convention initiative:
The Order of Canada is the country’s highest civilian honour and is the centrepiece of Canada’s honours system. It recognizes a lifetime of outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation. Five hundred and fifty-two recipients of the Order of Canada have joined an initiative led by John Polanyi, C.C., Douglas Roche, O.C., and Murray Thomson, O.C., calling for international negotiations to achieve a Nuclear Weapons Convention – a verifiable treaty on the prohibition and elimination of nuclear weapons.
