“Mary Simon, an Inuk leader, former diplomat and broadcaster, will become the first Indigenous person to serve as governor-general, a historic appointment made while Canada grapples with the continuing effects of colonialism.”
Mary Simon appointed as Governor-General is a huge step forward. Through the EU ban processes Ms. Simon was a huge ally and worked closely with many of us (indigenous and non-indigenous) on delegations throughout Europe. She was always very active supporting Inuit and all Indigenous interests, while also understanding and supportive of non-Indigenous sustainable use interests.
Canadian Seal Products want to applaud this appointment which is an important step toward greater national unity!
