Prince Edward Island is getting a new Lieutenant governor. Antoinette Perry has deep roots in PEI, hailing from Tignish.
She was an elementary school teacher for 32 years, local church organist and a local historian.
But she's also the president of a PEI Liberal party riding association.
I know PEI is small, but couldn't the Liberals find someone without so many close links to them to be the non-partisan Queen’s representative?
Lieutenant governors are appointed by the Governor General on the advice of the Prime Minister and it's the PM’s job to make sure there isn’t even a whiff of partisanship.
As long as Trudeau is in charge, Conservatives need not apply.
