  • Major-General Georges-Philéas Vanier PC DSO MC CD (23 April 1888 – 5 March 1967) was a Canadian soldier and diplomat who served as Governor General of Canada, the 19th since Canadian Confederation. Vanier was born and educated in Quebec. In 1906, he was valedictorian when he graduated with a BA from Loyola College, one of Concordia University's founding institutions. After earning a university degree in law, served in the Canadian army during the First World War; on the European battlefields he lost a limb, but was commended for his actions with a number of decorations from the King. Subsequently, Vanier returned to Canada and remained in the military until the early 1930s, when he was posted to diplomatic missions in Europe. With the outbreak of the Second World War, Vanier once again became active in the military, commanding troops on the home front, until the cessation of hostilities in 1945, whereupon he returned to diplomatic circles. He was in 1959 appointed as governor general by Queen Elizabeth II, on the recommendation of Prime Minister of Canada John Diefenbaker, to replace Vincent Massey as viceroy, and he occupied the post until his death in 1967. Vanier proved to be a popular governor general, with his war record earning respect from the majority of Canadians; though, as a Quebecer, he was met with hostility by Quebec separatists. (en)

Vanier nació y recibió educación en Quebec, y, después de obtener un grado en leyes en la universidad, sirvió en el ejército canadiense durante la Primera Guerra Mundial; en los campos de batalla europeos perdió una pierna, pero fue elogiado y condecorado por el rey. Posteriormente, Vanier regresó a Canadá y se mantuvo en el servicio activo hasta principios de la década de 1930, cuando fue destinado a misiones diplomáticas en Europa. Con el inicio de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, Vanier nuevamente sirve en el ejército, comandando tropas en el frente interno, hasta el cese de hostilidades en 1945, tras lo cual regresó a los círculos diplomáticos. Fue designado gobernador general en 1959 por Isabel II, por recomendación del primer ministro John Diefenbaker, para reemplazar a Vincent Massey, y ocupó el puesto hasta su muerte en 1967. Vanier demostró ser un Gobernador General popular, con su historial de guerra ganó el respeto de la mayoría de los canadienses; a pesar de ello, como quebequense, fue tratado con hostilidad por los grupos separatistas quebequenses.

dbp:symbolism
  • The bell tower of the Church of Honfleur symbolises Vanier's Catholic faith, as well serving as a reminder of the first Governor of New France, Samuel de Champlain, who set sail for the New World from Honfleur. The tree represents knowledge and growth, while the Fleur de Lys recalls Vanier's French Canadian heritage. The swords evoke Vanier's active service in the military, while the gate of La Citadelle stands not only for the Quebec residence of the Governor General, but also the base of the Royal 22e Régiment, which Vanier helped to form and later commanded at La Citadelle. The flag above the gate is the personal standard of the governor general, symbolising that Vanier served as the monarch's viceroy.
