Stockwell Day is now a distinguished fellow

Retired MP and cabinet minister Stockwell Day can add another accolade to his resume. He was named a senior fellow with the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada on Tuesday.

In a news release announcing the honourary appointment, the think tank's president and CEO called Day "a champion for stronger commercial relations with Asia," and a "tireless promoter" of Canadian interests in Asia.

"We are honoured to have him as one of our Distinguished Fellows," said Yuen Pau Woo.

The British Columbia MP served as international trade minister and minister responsible for the Asia-Pacific Gateway, and was also Treasury Board president.

The Asia Pacific Foundation does research, publishes reports, organizes panel discussions and other activities. In his new role with the foundation, which is mostly funded by the federal government, Day will attend expert meetings and participate in a task force called the National Conversation on Asia.
