Prime Minister Harper's team of "ardent monarchists" has chosen well. David Lloyd Johnston, who will become the Queen's next vice-regal representative in Canada, is a highly respected political moderator, legal scholar, university president and constitutional monarchist who vows to be "a stalwart defender of our Canadian heritage, of Canadian institutions and of the Canadian people". Above all, and having followed him for many years as a non-partisan moderator of political debate on television, he is an impeccable gentleman with a distinguished record of public service. I am sure he will perform brilliantly in his new role as Governor General. This is a fine choice indeed!
