Saying Goodbye to Romeo Leblanc

Before the state funeral tomorrow----the public has the opportunity to say goodbye to Romeo LeBlanc today. There will be limited seating for the viewing at his home in Memramcook. His state funeral is scheduled for tomorrow morning at 11 at the Saint Thomas Church and is closed to the media and the public.

Politicians from all three levels of government are expected to be on hand. LeBlanc was the first Acadian appointed governor general, and died last week after a lengthy illness at the age of 81.
