by

Governor-General Michaëlle Jean is reportedly becoming a special envoy for UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) following her term in Canada. She says her goals are to fight poverty and boost literacy rates in Haiti, her home country. According to CTV, Prime Minister Stephen Harper “went to bat” for Ms. Jean and helped her secure the position. However, it’s common knowledge that the Tories had no intention of extending her term.
