The governor general caught the attention of Canadian veterans but for all the wrong reasons.
Wearing a full space suit, Julie Payette greeted veterans at the Ottawa Remembrance Day ceremony.
“Oh, this old thing? Yeah, I’ve been to space. Oh, you’ve never been?” Payette was heard saying to Corporal Leonard McCain.
When she’s not using tax dollars to renovate her home or avoiding her security detail or yelling at her staff, Payette has used every opportunity to remind Canadians she was an astronaut.
“You may have served Canada valiantly, but I served the planet Earth,” Payette said in her remarks during the ceremony.
