  1. Members of the Order of Canada put “CM” after their name. When I first saw it, I had to look it up, because it was a bit counter-intuitive that CM meant Member (of the Order of) Canada. It seems this has now been corrected, many years down the road. With Henry M’s inclusion, CM now means “Canadian Murderer.” Too bad for those who already have the letters after their name, but such is life.
