Canada's Former Governor General is coming to Collingwood.

The Right Honourable David Johnston will be speaking at New Life Church on Tracey Lane on Wednesday, March 6 at 7 P.M.

This is a fundraiser for Hospice Georgian Triangle and Foundation Director, Janet Fairbridge tells us exclusively that Johnston will be speaking about his latest book "Trust: Twenty Ways To Build A Better Country".

He was Canada's Governor General from 2010 to 2017.

Fairbridge says his brother and sister-in-law live in Collingwood and she is so excited that Mr. Johnston is coming to the community for this event.

The charity organization hopes to raise 10 to 15 thousand dollars. Fairbridge says she is grateful that Wayne Noble of Noble Insurance is taking care of most of the costs as sponsor so that all donations can go to providing care at Campbell House in Collingwood.

Starting on Monday, February 11, you can reserve your seat by making a 30 dollar donation per person through the HGT website at www.hospicegeorgiantriangle.com/davidjohnston.

Copies of Johnston's book will be available at the event for a minimum donation of 25 dollars per book and Mr. Johnston will be available to sign it.
