Just so that you all know your tax dollars are being well spent, I should tell you I have just returned from a reception at the Canadian Ambassador's Residence in tokyo for Canadian journalists here. A very nice buffet, open bar with Okanagan valley wines, Ottawa Valley aged cheddar, Molson's Canadian and moosehead. Ambassador Wright is a a very nice guy and a habs fan. About 40 scribes attended - did lots of networking and enjoyed the official residence's extremely impressive collection of canadian art, including a very nice A.Y. Jackson painting and some other group of seven looking stuff.
