David Johnston, Canada's New Governor General

I awoke to news that Canada will soon have a new Governor General.  I was more than a little shocked that he's a white male.  Isn't it against three or four laws for such a person to be appointed to anything these days?!

The best comment I've seen so far came, surprisingly, from the CBC News website @ 9:08am:

Wow, a qualified, learned, respected and seemingly very able GG who seems to have been chosen on merit.

I'm not sure that's allowed.
