Dalai Lama to speak at Montreal's Uniprix Stadium

August 04, 2011

(Montreal, Thursday, 4 August 2011) – The Canada Tibet Committee is proud to announce that it will host a Public Talk by His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama on Wednesday, 7 September at Montreal's Uniprix Stadium.

His Holiness will speak on ‘Global Citizenship through Universal Responsibility,’ a theme chosen to honour last year's decision by the Canadian government to welcome 1,000 displaced-Tibetans living in Arunachal Pradesh, India to Canada over the next five years.

Tickets for the Public Talk go on sale on Friday, August 5 at www.admission.com or by calling 1.800.361.4595. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. and the Public Talk will start at 1:00 p.m. Simultaneous interpretation into French will be available.
