On yesterday’s episode of Q, host Jian Ghomeshi speaks with former Canadian Governor General Michaëlle Jean and her husband Jean-Daniel Lafond about their relationship with the media during her tenure.
“You guys had a lot of ideas and impressions projected on you,” Ghomeshi says. He quotes a Maclean’s article in which Jean said her strategy when dealing with media criticisms was to bite her tongue. He asks, why weren’t you more vocal about inaccuracies?
“It was difficult,” Jean said. “There was a lot of misinformation about us, and we’ll die with that — we know that. There were a lot of lies — and we’ll die with that. We were accused of so many things,” including being part of Quebec’s separatist movement.
