Student and senior tickets on sale to hear Dalai Lama at Montreal's Uniprix Stadium

August 31, 2011

The Canada Tibet Committee (CTC) is pleased to announce that special ticket prices are now available for students and seniors to the Public Talk by His Holiness Dalai Lama on Wednesday, 7 September at Montreal's Uniprix Stadium. Students and seniors with valid identification can purchase tickets for $15.

Student and senior tickets are on sale at Stade Uniprix only.

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.

The CTC is offering reduced student ticket prices in respect of the wishes of the Dalai Lama that ticket prices be kept to an absolute minimum. Proceeds from the Talk will be donated to Project Tibet Society, which is overseeing the implementation of the immigration program to help resettle Tibetans living in Arunachal Pradesh to Canada.

The CTC chose this week to put student tickets on sale to ensure that students from across Canada visiting a great city to study would have an equal opportunity to hear from a great world leader at this once in a lifetime event.
