The rehabilitation proceeds apace!

Brian Mulroney is set for more international recognition next month: he’ll be named a commander in the French Legion of Honour on Dec. 6.

 The award is France’s highest honour, established in 1802 by Napoleon. A statement from the office of the French ambassador to Canada says Mr. Mulroney is being recognized for increasing ties between Canada and France, and for the international promotion of French culture.

Mr. Mulroney is the first former Canadian prime minister to receive the honour, which had been previously given to some Quebec premiers. Former Alberta premier Ralph Klein had been named to a lower rank in the legion.

Late last year, Mr. Mulroney was appointed a gold member of the Order of the Companions of O.R. Tambo, South Africa’s highest honour for foreign citizens, to recognize his work fighting apartheid. Last month, St. Francis Xavier University announced the creation of the Brian Mulroney Institute of Government.

    This is the kind of thing that makes me despair for humanity.

    “Rehabilitation”…because, at the Globe and Rosedale, the word “whitewash”, they know, might be misunderstood by the hoi polloi…as they pretend to be upset by Trump’s election.

    Can a U.S. presidential pardon apply in Canada?

    …”There’s movement going on between Canada
    and the United States at the moment, led by
    the prime minister, and I think it’s all
    positive,” Canada’s 18th prime minister told
    Rosemary Barton in an interview Tuesday on CBC
    News Network’s Power & Politics.

    Mulroney, who has known Trump for 25 years and
    has a home in the same Palm Beach, Fla.
    neighbourhood, added the “feedback” on Justin
    Trudeau’s post-election phone call to Trump
    “was positive.”….
