the Senate and became that chamber's Speaker. He was in 1994

until succeeded by Adrienne Clarkson in 1999, citing his health as
the reason for his stepping down. His appointment as the Queen's
representative caused some controversy, due to perceptions of
political favouritism, though he was praised for raising the
stature of Acadians and francophones, and for opening up Rideau
