The Privy Council Office will be giving Prime Minister Justin Trudeau advice this week on selecting a new governor general after Julie Payette resigned amid a scathing report into harassment and a toxic work environment at Rideau Hall. Roughly 100 public servants volunteered to be interviewed during a third-party review into the workplace culture at Rideau Hall. Quintet Consulting’s final report found overwhelmingly that Payette and her second-in-command, Assunta Di Lorenzo, were responsible for a toxic and poisonous workplace environment at Rideau Hall, according to a government source with direct knowledge. The president of the Queen’s Privy Council for Canada, Dominic LeBlanc, said the federal government plans to appoint a new governor general in weeks rather than months.
