Slideshow: Mary Simon in Kangiqsualujjuaq
Governor general returned to community she first lived in after four years away
Gov. Gen. Mary Simon spent Tuesday visiting community organizations and the residents of Kangiqsualujjuaq — the Nunavik community on the coast of Ungava Bay her father, Bob May, helped established shortly after she was born.
Accompanied by her husband Whit Fraser and a small entourage of staff and security, Simon was welcomed to the community with hugs from old friends and family, before a busy day of meetings and community gatherings.
She was set to continue her Nunavik tour in Kangiqsujuaq Wednesday before her staff cancelled the trip over weather issues. Simon’s tour is set to continue Thursday with a full day in Inukjuak, then wrap up Friday in Kuujjuaq.
