Interview with the Dalai Lama

The Dalai Lama has been visiting Canada for the past week. Here is an interview with the Mayor of Vancouver Sam Sullivan. His Holiness has become an honorary citizen of Canada by the Canadian government. Of coarse China has had something to say about it, they have threatened the Canadian government that by doing this it could hurt their relations, good on the Canadians for not backing down, unlike the Australian Government who don't recognize his Holiness when he comes here to Australia typical of our spineless government who love to promote war instead of peace.

Im leaving Australia in three weeks time to go to India and Nepal for a year, I'll be spending allot of time in Dharamsala where the Dalai Lama lives with all the exiled Tibetan refugees. Im going to teach them english and one of the biggest highlights of the trip for me is when his Holiness comes out on the 11th of December for eleven days to meet and be with his people, I hope to meet him personally it certainly would be a dream come true.
