Stephane Dion

Stephane Dion was born on September 28, 1955 in Quebec. He is a Canadian politician who served as Minister of Foreign Affairs in the Cabinet headed by Justin Trudeau from 2015 to 2017. He has been the Member of Parliament of Canada for the riding of Saint-Laurent—Cartierville in Montreal since 1996. He was the leader of the Liberal Party of Canada and the Leader of the Opposition in the House of Commons of Canada from 2006 to 2008.

A dual citizenship (French and Canadian)

His father, Leon Dion, a well-known professor deceased in 1997, married to Denyse Kormann on June 4, 1951 in Paris (France). Stephane Dion and his three brothers and one sister all have dual Canadian-French citizenship, obtained via his mother Denyse who was born in Paris.

A distant cousin of Celine Dion and Justin Trudeau

As Celine Dion, Stephane Dion is a descendant of the Percheron pioneer Jean Guyon baptized in Tourouvre (Orne, France) in 1592. The politician can trace his roots to Guyon's son Claude, while the pop star can trace her bloodline to Guyon's other son, Jean Guyon du Buisson.

Moreover, the French-born pioneer Zacharie Cloutier (~1590 - 1677) is a common ancestor of Justin Trudeau (11th generation) and Stephane Dion (10th generation).
