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.

Governor General Michaëlle Jean’s Visit to Vancouver City Hall with Oslo Olympic Flag


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 pagaentry (recording some clips for a future podcast) and asked VANOC CEO John Furlong a few questions on a snowy Vancouver morning.

Here are some photo of the spectacle more pics on my Oslo Olympic Flag Reception photoset – also, check out Oslo Olympic Flag Ceremony with Governor General ~ Olympic Outsider podcast #7.
