"In light of the responsibilities related to the function of Governor General of Canada and Commander-in-Chief of the Canadian Forces, I have decided to renounce the French citizenship that I acquired for family reasons in 2004.Once again, I'm satisfied.
"France acceded to my request by decree on September 23, 2005."
I'm probably one of the few that likes the post of Governor General. I like the idea that we have a royal tie, albeit in ceremony only, to the Queen and the United Kingdom. The office could probably have a smaller budget, sure, but it's nice to have Canadian "royalty".
