Talk:List of lieutenant governors of Quebec

I suspect that this list may be messed up. I think it is confusing Governors and Lieutenant Governors. For instance Francis Nathaniel Burton was, according to his DoCB entry, LG of Lower Canada from 1808 until his death in 1832, while George Ramsay was in fact Governor during the period when he is listed here as being the Lieutenant Governor from 1819-1828. Can someone who knows more about this please clear up the confusion? Cheers, Fawcett5 19:04, 13 Jun 2005 (UTC)


The LG website doesn't use a hyphen (in English, anyway), and since the other English LGs as well as the GG do not use hyphens, why would there be one here? Adam Bishop 06:46, 22 October 2005 (UTC)

Hi! I know it can be tricky and is odd, and it's not cut-and-dry. According to The Canadian Style, the official (popular) style guide produced by Public Works and Government Services Canada/Department of the Secretary of State (s 2.14, p. 46), Lieutenant-Governor (hyphen) is the correct term to be used (contradicting the QC website); however, usage of Lieutenant Governor is still common. Similarly, Governor General (without hyphen) is the official term in Canada, yet Governor-General is still used - though less commonly - in Canada (and is the choice term elsewhere). Why the difference? Likely because of the order of the terms: Governor is the primary noun for both terms and appears later for the provincial position, hence the hyphen; this is also summarised in The Oxford Guide to Canadian English Usage (p. 244).
Moreover (though this can vary), both terms generally should appear only with initial caps when preceding a specific name/titleholder or for clarity.
e.g., The governor general is Canada's Crown representative. but
Prior to entering political office, Governor General Michaëlle Jean worked at the CBC.
I trust this is sufficient. Let me know if you've any questions. E Pluribus Anthony 06:57, 22 October 2005 (UTC)
