Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announces on July 13 that former astronaut Julie Payette will be Canada’s next Governor General.
Payette will become the 29th person to hold the position, and the fourth female to be the monarch’s representative in Canada. She will take office in autumn this year to replace David Johnston. Payette is the first Canadian female to board the International Space Station in 1999. She went on a second space flight in 2009.
