Derek Burney Accepts Chancellor Roll

Lakehead University's new chancellor is a star in the political and diplomatic circles in Canada and the United States.  Thunder Bay's Derek Burney is a  former ambassador and former chief of staff to the prime minister.   Burney says he accepted the largely ceremonial position because he doesn't take education for granted and wants to show the important roll it has played in his storied career.
