Canada installs first indigenous governor general, highlights reconciliation

Canada installed an indigenous woman as its governor general on Monday, the first such person to hold the post, in an elaborate ceremony that spotlighted the country’s effort to reconcile with its colonial past. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau named Mary Simon- a former journalist, ambassador, and Inuit community advocate – to serve as the
representative in Canada of its head of state,
Queen Elizabeth, earlier this month. Simon is the first indigenous person to take on the role, created more than 400 years ago to represent the colonial power on North American soil.

The change comes as Canada grapples with
the legacy of its treatment of indigenous people. “We need people like Ms. Simon because we need people who build bridges and bring us
together Trudeau said at the ceremony. Since May, hundreds of unmarked graves of children have been discovered at former “residential schools,” run for indigenous children forcibly separated from their families in what a Truth and Reconciliation Commission has called “cultural genocide.

“I have heard from Canadians who describe a
renewed sense of possibility for our country and hope that l can bring people together Simon, 73, said after being installed. The ceremony, broadcast by the Canadian
Broadcasting Corp also in Simon’s native
Inuktitut language, was scaled back and masks
were worn due to COVID-19. A drummer
accamnanied her entrv inta the Senate uhera were worn due to COVID-19.

A drummer accompanied her entry into the Senate where she took an oath. The governor general performs functions such as swearing in governments and formally signing legislation, but is also the commander in chief of the military and can summon or dissolve Parliament.

Bill Clinton turned down tea with the Queen to ‘be a tourist’ and eat Indian food

Former US President and his wife, Hillary Clinton, were offered tea with Queen Elizabeth, they declined it in favor of other activities, a note from Blair’s private secretary, Phillip Barton, reveals.

Bill Clinton declined offers of tea with Queen Elizabeth and dinner at the British Prime Minister’s official country house because he wanted to “be a tourist,” go shopping and eat Indian food during his first official visit to the UK with Tony Blair as leader in 1997, according to formerly classified documents released by the UK’s National Archives.

Downing Street was “pulling out all the stops” to ensure Clinton’s May 1997 visit — made between trips to summits in The Hague and Paris — was a “public relations success,” according to memos between Dominick Chilcott, assistant private secretary to the foreign secretary, and John Holmes, Blair’s principal private secretary.

“The Americans said that the President and Mrs. Clinton were very grateful for HM The Queen’s invitation to tea at the Palace, but would wish to decline politely,” he said in a May 21 briefing.

The documents detail attempts to confirm the ever-changing schedule for the presidential couple’s visit to the UK on May 29.

At the time of the visit, Blair had just begun his 10-year tenure as UK Prime Minister, having been elected earlier that month.

When asked what he would like to do after his speech, the note said that Clinton’s team had “no clear idea” — but that the President “wanted to be a tourist” and wanted to visit a garden and shops, and sample some Indian food with the Prime Minister, Barton wrote.

“The Americans were not attracted to our suggestion of a dinner at Chequers,” the note added. Chequers is the UK Prime Minister’s country retreat, based in Buckinghamshire, about 30 miles northwest of London.

In the end, the group dined at Le Pont de la Tour, spending £265 ($360) on a meal that included halibut, salmon, sole and rabbit, according to receipts.
