    When Confederation took place, it was promised that Lt Gov'nors would rotate from Catholic (or Irish ancestroy) to Protestant (or British ancestory). This was to appease both of the major ethics groups in the province and settle disagrements. While times have changed, it is still good to hold fast to tradition in such a traditional office. Much like the Gov'nors General still rotate from French to English in Ottawa. Due to a mistake made by former Premier Brian Tobin, the Catholic (Irish) are owed one.
