To my knowledge, Maclean’s has published two major features on Madame Jean. In Oct. 2005, Shanda Deziel wrote about her and we compared the Governor General to Angelina Jolie. Earlier this year, I wrote about her and we compared the Governor General to Oprah.
Furthermore, shortly after her appointment was announced, John Geddes looked into the much-discussed political leanings of her and her husband.
Even furthermore, two years ago Michael Petrou wrote about Lafond and his book, Conversations in Tehran.
