Legacy of Govenor General Michaelle Jean


Queen’s University Professor Emeritus Ned Franks is available to discuss the legacy of Governor General Michaelle Jean, who will step down from her job on Oct. 1.

Professor Franks taught at Queen’s for 35 years, has written and edited 13 books – including The Parliament of Canada and Dissent and the State – and is one of Canada’s leading experts on Parliament.
