Mary Simon installed as Canada's 30th Governor General

Mary Simon is now officially the Governor General of Canada, after being installed in a pared-down but historic and culturally-rich ceremony. A prominent Inuk leader and former ambassador, Simon is the 30th governor general Canada has had, and is the first Indigenous person to take on the role.
