Dear Ms. Hueichaqueo:
Congratulations on receiving the Governor General’s Medallion for your contribution to strengthening the relationship between Canada and Chile.
The dialogue that has occurred during this State visit has been facilitated by your own commitment to promoting Canada to Chile. Your efforts to increase understanding between our Aboriginal communities and experts in Chile has been beneficial to both our countries. That you took it upon yourself to create these exchanges speaks to your generosity of heart and the importance you place on maintaining close ties. I am honoured to present you with this medallion.
I wish you the very best.
