Ex-astronaut Julie Payette is forced to abdicate as Governor General of Canada. Her leadership style has become the scientist’s undoing. It is the first time in the history of the world’s largest monarchy that a governor-general has to resign. Until a successor is appointed, Richard Wagner takes over the official business. The grandson of a Bavarian immigrant is chairman of the Supreme Court of Canada.

The reason for Payette’s resignation is an investigation report on their leadership style. Last summer, the CBC , Canada’s public English-language broadcaster, reported that Payette was belittling, abusing and publicly exposing employees. There were also allegations of bullying against Payette’s secretary.
