Your next governor general

According to a leak, the Prime Minister’s pick is University of Waterloo president and noted academic David Lloyd Johnston.

More on Mr. Johnston from Wikipedia and Waterloo. His official CV is here. YouTube has video.

Two and a half years ago, Mr. Harper selected Mr. Johnston to decide the terms of reference for the Mulroney-Schreiber inquiry. (Terms of reference which were met with some displeasure.)
