About Adrienne Clarkson:
Adrienne Louise Clarkson is a Hong Kong-born Canadian journalist, politician, and stateswoman who served as Governor General of Canada, the 26th since Canadian Confederation.
Our horizon is the creation of a noble society to which, like the medieval builder of those glorious cathedrals, you will have added your conception, your artful piece of stone.
Each of us is carving a stone, erecting a column, or cutting a piece of stained glass in the construction of something much bigger than ourselves.
Sometimes we read or hear too much news that makes us fearful or suspicious of others. We can forget that most of the people that we know, or at least encounter regularly, are decent and friendly.
To be complex does not mean to be fragmented. This is the paradox and the genius of our Canadian civilization.
