So, want to hear something totally awesome? My podunk hippie little British Columbian town, which apparently boasts a 15 per cent Francophone population, had a big St-Jean Baptiste celebration for the first time ever this year. They closed down the main downtown street, and there were local French musicians and vendors, and Québecois cuisine, and of course a beer garden.

MAR. 12 | La Journée de la Francophonie ... J'en fais partie!

Last week I went to Victoria as a representative of the Act Now BC Athlete Ambassador Team to be part of the
B.C. Journée de la Francophonie, since their theme this year was "Sports and the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games."

The event was held at the Legislature and one of the agenda items, apparently, included having an Anglophone development athlete in an obscure sport give a speech. To a group of Francophones. En Français.
