Ambassador Doer

Manitoba's ex-premier is going to Washington

Gary Doer will be Canada’s next ambassador to the United States. The 61-year-old, who stepped down as Manitoba’s Premier yesterday, will replace Michael Wilson, who has been in the post since 2006. Despite Doer’s popularity among those on the left—he has been premier since 1999—he is said to have a good relationship with the prime minister.
