I've shaken the hand of the next Governor General of Canada
David Johnston is the president of the University of Waterloo (where I work). Today, the news broke that he will be the next Governor General of Canada.
Yes, I've shaken his hand, and chatted with him. In addition, I've received letters from him... like this one, and this one (ah, but that's a different story, and I doubt he had much personal involvement in the process).
He is very diplomatic and will make a great Governor General.
