B.C. says good-bye to one of the province’s most colourful lieutenants-governor Thursday.
The first aboriginal person to serve in the vice-regal role — Steven Point — is stepping down at the end of his five year term.
A tree-planting and a ceremonial review of the troops are planned at the legislature as part of the farewell for Point — who was known to park his late-model GMC pick-up at Government House and carved a cedar canoe in the garage.
Point is being replaced by Kamloops-area rancher Judith Guichon — and welcoming ceremonies will be held in Victoria for her on Friday.
