In farewell statements to the House of Commons, former foreign affairs minister Stéphane Dion and former immigration minister John McCallum told MPs they are leaving Ottawa to continue serving the public as the respective ambassadors in Europe and China.

Dion said he had accepted Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's offer to become Canada's "senior diplomat to Europe" by taking on the dual role of ambassador to the European Union and Germany. MP John McCallum also said goodbye to the House as he readies himself to become Canada's ambassador to China.
