Principal congratulates PM-designate Justin Trudeau


Suzanne Fortier, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of McGill University, extends her congratulations to Mr. Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party of Canada for the results of the 2015 Canadian federal election.

“Congratulations to Mr. Trudeau and all the Members of Parliament elected to the Canadian House of Commons,” says Professor Fortier, “as well as to all the candidates for their participation in the democratic process and their commitment to the free and full exchange of ideas. Thank you to Prime Minister Stephen Harper for his nine years of service to Canada. The federal government has been, and will continue to be, an important partner in McGill’s pursuit of its academic, research and service missions. I look forward to working with Mr. Trudeau and his cabinet, and to continuing the dialogue about the importance of higher education to the well-being of all Canadians.”
