Oslo Olympic Flag Ceremony with Governor General ~ Olympic Outsider podcast #7

Canada’s Governor-General, Michaëlle Jean (a Haitian refuge who immigrated to Quebec as a child), and Vancouver Mayor Mayor Sam Sullivan were on hand – along with a phalanx of officers of everykind – to reveal the 1952 Oslo Winter Olympic flag. I headed out from North Vancouver via transit to attend and watch the pagaentry. After stealthing into the media event, I asked VANOC CEO John Furlong a few questions on a snowy Vancouver morning.
