His Holiness Dalai Lama 14 is Canadian! – Choogle on #75

From the vault comes the story of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama’s honorary Canadian citizenship ceremony at the Canucks rink in Vancouver. Along with a rousing Oh Canada!, and the official ceremony, comes a few words of humour and counsel from HHDL14 and his eloquent assistant and discussion of the Dalai Lama Centre for Peace in Vancouver.

Oh Canada! from Vancouver City Hall – Olympic Outsider Bonus

Listen: Oh Canada! from Vancouver City Hall – Olympic Outsider Bonus (.mp3, 1:31)

Canada’s Governor General Michaëlle Jean (a Haitian refuge who immigrated to Quebec as a child) and Mayor Sam Sullivan (suddenly, the world’s second most famous quadrapelegic) were on hand with a phalanx of officers of everykind to reveal the 1952 Oslo Winter Olympic flag.

I attended and watched the pageantry (recording some clips for a future podcast) and asked VANOC CEO John Furlong a few questions on a snowy Vancouver morning.  See more pics on my Flickr photostream.
