It is with profound pride that Tungasuvvingat Inuit celebrates the installation of Canada’s 30th Governor General, her Excellency, Mary Simon. The ceremony today was moving and beautiful and there were many tears in our urban Inuit community as we witnessed history as the first Inuk steps into the position of Governor General of Canada.
Today, was also very special for me as my father David Serkoak drummed in Her Excellency, for her installation into the Senate Chamber. It was humbling and forever be an honour for my family and Tungasuvvingat Inuit as my father is also a past board member at TI.
Congratulations to Her Excellency, Mary Simon. We are very proud of you, and we will watch with pride in your new role as the Governor General of Canada.
