Canada's flagbearer will be announced tomorrow on Parliament Hill in Ottawa.

According to this CTV article, Despatie will decline any offer to carry the flag.

I'm thinking Simon Whitfield or Ian Miller.

I think those are pretty much the two leading candidates Parsley Sage and I won't have a problem w/either one. :)

Thanks for the info. I was just about to check the COC's website to see when the announcement would be made. :)

From NBC Olympics on twitter:


Qatar, sending women to the #Olympics for the first time, will have a female flag-bearer: shooter Bahiya al-Hamad.

Simon is such a fabulous choice. He's just an unreal human being - I know extended members of his family and it's easy to understand where he gets his humlity, his sense of humor and just him being such a down to earth person from. the COC couldn't have made a better choice!

Simon! :cheer: He's such a classy, wonderful guy. Terrific choice by the COC.

His silver medal in Beijing is still one of my favourite Olympic moments of all time.

USA: A cancer survivor and or gun shot victim who found strength in sport and overcame a hurricane and/or tsunami to get to London.

And has now dedicated his/her life to curing cancer, solving world hunger, promoting world peace, and bottle feeding hungry baby animals.
