Canada's next Governor-General should be a a First Nations Leader

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is a hereditary chief. Why shouldn't her representative in Canada be one as well?

I haven't had the time to write a proper OP-Ed , or even a letter to the editor on this subject, but since nobody on CBC's At Issue panel will say it, I will: the next Governor-General should be a First Nations person. Alberta's Willy Littlechild would be a good choice, so would B.C.'s Wendy Grant-John. Numerous Cree and Metis leaders can speak passable French.

It is long overdue.
