Former Governor General Dies at 87


A former governor general of Canada has passed away after a difficult battle with Alzheimers.
Romeo Leblanc was appointed to the highest office in the country(yeah, it’s got some constitutional clout)after years of public service.
Leblanc was well known for his activist role in East Coast politics, was the first Acadian appointed to the GG office, and was responsible for negotiating the 200 mile wide offshore economic zone and as a result became well known as the “fishermens’ minister”.
He was with his son when he passed away. The two of them were very close.
