Global News published this video item, entitled “Mary Simon becomes Canada’s 30th governor general | FULL” – below is their description.
Canada held an installation ceremony for Mary Simon on Monday, who became the country’s 30th governor general and the first Indigenous person to hold the position.
The ceremony, held in the Senate of Canada building in Ottawa, included a swearing-in, the presentation of Canadian honours and the Great Seal of Canada. Simon also delivered her 1st speech after her oath.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was among the few people allowed to witness the ceremony in person as public health guidelines have set limits on attendance and mask requirements for anyone there in person.
Trudeau named Simon, an Inuk leader and former Canadian diplomat, as his choice to be the Queen’s representative in Canada earlier this month, replacing Julie Payette who resigned in January.
