Olympics, The International Broadcast Centre

Me in front of the Olympic Torch
I've been spending the Olympics in a novel way. Since I'm not working for any of the large news agencies, I'm not accredited for any of the Olympic events. However, the Canadian Press has a commercial photography division, and they've been keeping me very busy, believe it not, documenting Canadian Government Cabinet Ministers as they tour the various Olympic facilities.

Thursday, I had a fascinating tour through the International Broadcast Centre in Vancouver with Industry Minister Tony Clemente.
