    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.
