Canada Induction Lunch
Ottawa, October 27, 2017
French Ambassador becomes an honoured Chaîne member

Given that Canada celebrated its 150 years as a nation this year, the Baillis’ and Members’ Luncheon within the programme for the National Bailliage’s Annual Grand Chapitre in the country’s capital city was a special treat: a visit to the French Embassy.

The midday event was highlighted by the induction of Her Excellency Kareen Rispal, the Ambassador for France to Canada, into the Chaîne as Chevalier d’Honneur.

Attendees were greeted by a magnificently set dining room, with a menu and wines to match.
