Canada's Longest Serving Returning Officer Retires

Many Canadians are only directly involved in the electoral process when they head to a polling station to vote for their local councillor, member of provincial legislature or federal parliament. Others have made a career working in politics and some serve democracy by making sure the electoral process is run fairly and transparently. Yet, few in this country have been part of the democratic process with the longevity and dedication of retiring Returning Officer Ray LeBlanc. No one federally, or in any province or territory, has held the position of Returning Officer for as long as LeBlanc.
