News reports in the US have said that David Johnston will be named as the new Governor General of Canada. Hope a comment from south of the border does not offend but I have met him many times. I brilliant scholar with the administrative skills to run two large universities (McGill and Waterloo). A great man who I hope does a fine job in his new position. I am also guessing that he is happy he turned down the NHL draft to the Boston Bruins and went to law school instead.
