Premier Gordon Campbell ZipLine over Robson Square & Greet Media at the BCMC

This morning we went to the BCMC (British Columbia Media Centre) where Premier Campbell and Minister of State for the Olympics Mary McNeil greeted the media and gave us a brief intro of the BC International Media Centre’s features.

(Why is Gordon wearing his HBC Olympic Red Mittens indoors and trying to use the touch screen with them on? Je ne sais pas!)

After, Premier Campbell and five-time Olympian Charmaine Crooks will demonstrate one of the exciting activities open to the public during the 2010 Winter Games and ride the new 170-metre-long zipline across Robson Square…

For a complete list of things to-do during the 2010 Winter Games, check out our “free event guide“…

We managed to take several pictures, and I got to play with my new Canon 7D.. Which now allows me do do video.. So I recorded the Premier Campbell conference after he zipline over Robson Square.

Where is this?
