    Congratulations to Governor General David Johnston on receiving his Old Brigade tie.

    Readers of e-Veritas may be interested to know that I have a longstanding personal connection with him, as he was Principal of McGill University when I graduated in 1981, and his signature is on my degree. Strange how everything seems to come full circle as the years go by.

    Best wishes, Your Excellency.
