That elusive Hillier photo

4 Jul

Two days after retiring as head of the Canadian military, Rick Hillier – the only chief of defence staff in Canadian history most Canadians can name – showed up this afternoon at the massive Fourth of July party outside the Ottawa residence of David Wilkins, American ambassador to Canada.

Over at Inside the Queensway, one-stop-source for all of Ottawa’s liveblogging needs, Kady O’Malley pined for a shot of Hillier out of uniform… and in a suit.

To satiate the hunger of those who really, really want to see what he looks like in his early days of civilianhood, here is the photo I snapped of the now-retired Hillier moments after he shook the ambassador’s hand:
