Liz Ii. Or Michaelle?

Recommended Posts

Well, with the massive earthquake in Haiti this week and Her Excellency being a former Haitian refugee, I wonder how much media attention she will get during the Vancouver Olympics?

I fear that the Haiti earthquake will be largely forgotten already by the time the Games start -- especially since Haiti won't take part in the Games anyway, thus not serving as a "reminder" during the parade of nations.

Perhaps a few foreign TV commentators will take the time to explain, "This is Michaelle Jean, the Governor General of Canada who will open the Games later in this ceremony. She originates from Haiti, the country which was so severely harmed by the earthquake last month". And maybe a few writing journalists will dedicate a portrait to the host's sort-of head of state and to her origins. But that will probably be all.
