The claims that Gov. Gen. Julie Payette has engaged in workplace harassment should be carefully reviewed. As a leading figure in our democracy, she should be leading by example and all people who work for her should be treated respectfully. This work principle must never be ignored. The governor general should be someone who enhances Canada’s core values. I recall paying a visit to the governor general’s premises during Ramadan and I was treated as an equal citizen. To me, the governor general should represent equality and should be open to the full participation of all employees and visitors. There really should be no debate about our tradition of good Canadian behaviour by the governor general.
