Michaelle Jean is sworn in as Canada's 27th governor general during a ceremony in the Senate Tuesday Sept. 27, 2005, in Ottawa, Canada. Queen Elizabeth II's new representative in Canada is a refugee from Haiti, the first black and only the third woman to hold the title of governor general. Jean, 48, is also one of the youngest to hold the office, the highest in Canada's constitutional order. (AP Photo/CP, Tom Hanson) Height (pixels): 401 Width (pixels): 512
