PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti -- Gov. Gen. Michaelle Jean toured a Haitian slum that she called an inspiration for Canada's own struggling communities, from the Inuit north to big cities grappling with gang violence.
She walked through the bustling streets of a rough-and-tumble Port-au-Prince neighbourhood on Saturday that until recently was a no-go zone even for the Haitian police.
