Born on a farm in the village of Cormier Cove in New- Brunswick, the young Roméo LeBlanc did not expect that one day, thanks to his loving family and some unexpected help from his sisters, he would have the chance to go to high school and university, become a history teacher, and then a journalist, finally a politician, climbing up the ladder to the highest position! Nevertheless, Roméo LeBlanc stayed modest and kept his great sense of humour all his life.

Discover a boy from Acadie and his Journey to Rideau Hall, the official home of the Governor General in Ottawa.
