Marc Garneau


Canadian Astronaut, a Navy Captain in the Canadian Space Agency from 1984 until he retired 4/05/1989.

He was the first Canadian in Space aboard the Challenger October 1984, with a second mission the spring of 1996. He was named the Deputy Director of the Canadian Astronaut Program in 1988, and a Mission specialist astronaut with NASA. He was the president of the Canadian Space Agency from 2001 to 2006, and in 2003 was installed as the ninth Chancellor of Carleton University in New Orleans.

In 2006, Garneau entered politics, seeking a seat as federal Member of Parliament with the Liberal Party of Canada. He was an unsuccessful candidate in Vaudreuil-Soulanges during that year's election, but two years later won the riding of Westmount—Ville-Marie in downtown Montreal.
