The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

For­mer Lib­eral leader and for­eign af­fairs min­is­ter Stéphane Dion says he has agreed to be Canada’s am­bas­sador to the Euro­pean Union. Dion made the an­nounce­ment while say­ing good­bye to his col­leagues in the House of Com­mons, fol­low­ing a sim­i­lar trib­ute from for­mer im­mi­gra­tion min­is­ter John McCal­lum. Dion, who rep­re­sents a Montreal rid­ing, was shuf­fled out of cab­i­net ear­lier this month in favour of Chrys­tia Free­land. Dion did not ini­tially ac­cept the po­si­tion.
