Quebec unveils new Lieutenant-Governor

Quebec unveils new Lieutenant-Governor

Quebec City (Quebec) 22 July 2015 – Yesterday, Prime Minister Harper named J. Michel Doyon, 72 a well known Quebec City lawyer, as the successor to Pierre Duchesne, to take over the position of Lieutenant-Governor for the province of Quebec.

M. Doyon called Gagné Letarte de Québec (the law office where he has been working for 30 years) right after his nomination to tell them that he would no longer be showing up for work.

Canada’s Governor General was on hand for the ceremony and had only good things to say about Me. Doyon. For credentials Me. Doyon has a doctorate in History, a doctorate in Philosophy and has worked as a licensed lawyer for 30 years. He was once the head of the Quebec Bar Association and has taught law in several institutions, including Université Laval, Laurentienne University in Sudbury, and at the Quebec Law School (l’Ecole du Barreau de Quebec).

The official date for handing over the reins from M. Duchesne to Me Doyon will take place at a later date when the two men will meet with Premier Philippe Couillard and a protocol committee.

The Lieutenant-Governor’s role is to represent the Queen of Canada for the province.

A posting which some people in Quebec claim has no significance whatsoever.
