See it before it’s stolen: Oslo Olympic Flag Ceremony – Olympic Outsider #7 (.mp3, 19:00)
Canada’s Governor General Michaëlle Jean (a Haitian refuge who immigrated to Quebec as a child) and Mayor Sam Sullivan were on hand – with a phalanx of officers of everykind – to reveal the 1952 Oslo Winter Olympic flag (which was subsequently stolen).
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.
