Here's what the government's press release has to say about him:
G. Daniel Caron (BA [Economics], Université Laval, 1980) has been deputy head of mission and minister-counsellor at the Embassy of Canada in Mexico since August 2005. He has occupied several senior positions within the Government of Canada over the past 27 years. He was director of the Japan Division at the Department of External Affairs and International Trade in Ottawa and counsellor at the Mission of Canada to the European Union in Brussels. Prior to this, Mr. Caron served as deputy director, Northern Europe Division and completed an assignment as regional director with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. In the 1990s, Mr. Caron served as a trade commissioner with the Japan Division and, during the 1980s, consul and trade commissioner at the Consulate General of Canada in Boston. He was part of the Canadian team that negotiated with France concerning fishing rights around Saint-Pierre and Miquelon. In 1978, Mr. Caron represented Canada in Ouagadougou at an international youth conference hosted by La Francophonie’s Agence de Coopération Culturelle et Technique. He and his wife Maria Aparicio have two children, Jean-Xavier and Marie-Lou. G. Daniel Caron succeeds Abina Dann.
Quite frankly, since Derek Fraser was our ambassador to Ukraine, I forgot there even was one. Hopefully this one will be a little more proactive and interactive ... and has a clue that many Canadians are interested in Ukraine and our country's role in the relationship between the two countries. (Ahem.)
Maybe he can even convince the Canadian government to update its list of ambassadors to Ukraine. (The last update was in 2006.)
I couldn't find a whole lot about our new ambassador on Google or the government website. That of course speaks only to my ineptitude in finding the info, not the government's in providing it. (Another story altogether.) So if anyone has a lead on more info, including a photo, please share!
