Like father, like daughter.
Lola Rasminsky, who founded the Arts for Children of Toronto that provides high-quality arts programs in under served communities including the former city of York, has recently been named a Member of the Order of Canada, following in the footsteps of her late father Louis Rasminsky.
He had served as the governor of the Bank of Canada from 1961 to 1973 and became one of the first people to be appointed a Companion to the Order of Canada in 1968.
