Mr. Hart attended the Breakfast in Honour of the Journée de la francophonie canadienne, organized by Gordon Campbell, Premier of British Columbia, at Vancouver’s Terminal City Club. They were joined by a number of dignitaries from Canada and other French-speaking countries. Her Excellency the Right Honourable Michaëlle Jean, Governor General of Canada, Quebec Premier Jean Charest, and B.C. Premier Gordon Campbell each addressed the full-to-capacity room, underscoring the excellent work being done by the Ministerial Conference on the Canadian Francophonie, of which Mr. Hart is a member. Another speaker, Pascal Couchepin, Grand Témoin de la Francophonie for the Olympic Games, discussed the place of the French language at the Olympics.

Mr. Hart also attended a special event in Whistler in addition to an evening show and reception hosted by the Government of Alberta.
