Governor-General of Canada became honorary doctor of St. Petersburg Institute of Mines

Governor-General of Canada Adrienne Clarkson who arrived in St. Petersburg as part of her state visit to Russia has become an honorary Doctor of the St. Petersburg State Institute of Mines.

The degree was awarded to her upon the decision of the academic council of the higher educational establishment for a considerable contribution to the formation of conditions for the state policy in the sphere of mineral raw materials and metals.

The Institute awarded the decree of honorary Doctor to me - a citizen of a different country, and to a person who received an education in the humanities, this honour is of particular importance to me, Clarkson said at the ceremony.

According to rector of the Institute Vladimir Litvinenko, the decree of Doctor was awarded not simply to the leader of a country but to a person who strives to make the economy in the field of natural resources work for society.

The ceremony took place in the assembly hall of the senior college on Tuesday. A Doctor's mantle, a diploma, a golden badge of the Institute of Mines, and a reward weapon were presented to the distinguished guest.

The state visit of governor-general of Canada Adrienne Clarkson will end on October 1.
