Ontarian's invited to pay their respects to maverick politician
Former Ontario lieutenant-governor Lincoln Alexander's body is now lying in state at Queen's Park.
Members of the public can stop by to pay their respects and sign a book of condolences from 8 to 8 today.
Later tonight Alexander's body will be returned to Hamilton, where he'll lie in repose at city hall until a state funeral on Friday at Hamilton Place.
Alexander was Canada's first black member of Parliament, first black cabinet minister, and he served as Ontario's lieutenant governor from 1985 to 1991.
