Among Ihe first recipients may be sailors who performed heroically in the explosion and fire which killed eight and in- jured 44 othars aboard the de- stroyer escort Kootenay Oct. 23, 1969. Some of these awards would be posthumous. Sources said the cabinet has been studying a three-tier order of bravery to get around what is considered a flaw in the single- tier Medal of Courage. A member of the government awards committee said the sin- gle-tier medal "becomes the measure of the lowest quality of action." The Order of Canada recog- nizes achievement in any field of national life and is not con- cerned with acts of bravery. It has two categories: companion and medal of service. ORDER WILL REMAIN It will remain in existence, the sources indicated, though possibly integrated in some fashion with the bravery awards. The new awards will be broadly equivalent to Britain's George Cross and George Medal, peacetime versions of UK Victoria Cross.

Besides the new awards for bravery, the government is re- ported to have under considera- tion a proposal to establish an order of military merit. It would recognize outstand- ing achievement in the military field, apart from brave acts, and would augment the rr.edal now awarded for long service and good conduct.
