The keynote address by the Ontario Ombudsman at the IOA conference on April 8, prompted Toronto Star columnist Jim Coyle to urge that Marin be reappointed to another five-year term.
Andre Marin might just have been made for New Orleans. The man has style. He’s oratorically rococo. He’s expert in the French civil code. His opinion is what Cajuns call a lagniappe – a gift he’ll give you for free. That’s a lot of flair for an ombudsman.
Coyle thought that Marin’s speech “was aimed at an audience beyond Louisiana” and he urged provincial leaders to give Marin another term. (Toronto Star.)
