All morning i’ve been watching Canada’s new Governor-General (Michaëlle Jean) get sworn in. Jean is a Haitian Canadian who came here when she was only 11 years old. I am extremely happy about who our Prime Minister has selected to take on this important role. I was a big fan of Adrienne Clarkson and wasn’t sure that anybody would ever be able to fill her shoes, but I have to say… I have high hopes for Jean. She has a beautiful radiance about her, she carries herself with grace and is an extremely intelligent woman! I look forward to seeing what she will accomplish over the next several years. Canada has made me proud with this one!
