Trudeau delivers speech after Mary Simon becomes Canada’s governor general | FULL

Global News published this video item, entitled “Trudeau delivers speech after Mary Simon becomes Canada’s 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.

Prime Minister Trudeau delivered a speech during the smaller ceremony in person as public health guidelines have set limits on attendance and mask requirements for anyone there in person.

“In this moment of unprecedented change – of rebuilding from the pandemic, of fighting the climate crisis, of walking forward on the path of reconciliation – we need your vision of a stronger Canada for everyone,” Trudeau said about Simon.

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.

“We are a country of vast arctic spaces and busy city skylines, of prairies and coasts. Of French and English. And of Indigenous languages. This is a big place, this is a diverse place. And so we need people like Ms. Simon. Because we need people who build bridges,” He said during his speech.
