From Wednesday's Globe and Mail
With the Prime Minister's Office indicating a new governor-general will be named shortly, speculation by vice-regal watchers is now focusing on Quebec — which hasn't produced a governor-general in 15 years — and a francophone woman.
The rationale for a Quebec woman is that, with the minority government Liberals substantially behind the Bloc Québécois in the polls, the appointment of a high-profile Quebecker as the Queen's representative could be politically beneficial. Plus, history has shown that women by and large have a better feel for the job — either as governor-general or provincial lieutenant-governor — than men.
