Canadian Alumni Network Representatives Meet and Greet the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada

October 18, 2013 Beijing - Representatives of the Canadian Alumni Network (CAN) welcomed the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, to Beijing at an Education Partnerships programme during His Excellency's first stop to China.

 

The Governor General was a professor at various post-secondary institutions in Canada, and had served in administrative roles as Dean of Law at the University of Western Ontario, Principal of McGill University, and President of the University of Waterloo. And as an alumni of Queens, and former president of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada, the Governor General warmly engaged the representatives, sharing his thoughts on education, learning more about the CAN, and even asked The Honourable John Baird Minister of Foreign Affairs, The Honourable Joe Oliver Minister of Natural Resources, Canadian Ambassador Guy Saint-Jacques and our CAN representatives where they graduated from. They proudly stated their Canadian institutions until there was a humourous gasp from everyone when Minister Oliver mentioned he had also graduated from Harvard.

The CAN representatives were invited to a group photo and Canadian Alumni Network founder, Richard N. Liu, thanked the Governor General on behalf of all 26 alumni volunteer representatives, who represent approximately 5000 alumni in China. Just before the signature photo, the Governor General was also present to witness two important partnership signings by Ivey School of Business, Western Ontario University; and Queens University.

The Canadian Alumni Network is celebrating it's 10th anniversary next week and have been fostering public awareness since 2003 that Canadian post-secondary institutions have an influential alumni network in China. And today's event is a testament of that importance and influence to which the network has grown over the past decade, with the continuing cooperation and support of the Canadian Embassy, and in conjunction with the hard work and dedication by all 26 alumni volunteer representatives based in Beijing and the alumni associations across Canada.

Justin Bieber's World Tour in Beijing 2013

AEG Live Asia are thrilled to announce the arrival of cultural phenomenon Justin Bieber and his Believe Tour in Beijing on September 29th. Performing live at Beijing’s MasterCard Center, Bieber is set to deliver what is sure to be an exhilarating one-night-only concert experience.
 
A true prodigy, Justin Bieber began his journey to superstardom at the age of 12, after posting a video clip of himself covering songs by Usher, Ne-Yo, and Stevie Wonder on YouTube. Over 10 million views later, Bieber found himself signed to Island Records and released his debut album, My World, at just 15 years of age. He has proven to be an unstoppable force ever since and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
 
Justin Bieber has again rewritten history. With January’s #1 debut of Believe Acoustic, Bieber has become the first-ever artist to earn five #1 albums before his 19th birthday! Believe Acoustic debuted #1 on SoundScan, with first week sales totaling 211,000 units, and was also #1 on iTunes in more than 60 countries. Separately, this accomplishment makes Bieber just the 10th act to achieve a #1 album in four consecutive years. He joins A-listers Jay-Z (7 years), the Beatles (6 years), and Paul McCartney/ Wings (5 years) in holding that rare distinction.
 
With worldwide album sales in excess of 15 million units, Bieber has dominated pop culture and social media—more than 43 million Facebook fans and over 40 million Twitter followers. And, having accrued 3 billion YouTube views, Justin Bieber is far and away the most popular YouTube artist of all time. With those numbers in the bank, Bieber was a lock for 2012 Social Artist of the Year as bestowed by the Billboard Music Awards. In 2013, Bieber was honored with three more Billboard Awards: Top Male Artist; Top Social Artist; Billboard’s first-ever Milestone Award, selected by fans for musical innovation and ingenuity!
Venue: MasterCard Center, Beijing
Dates: Sun Sep 29 2013
Prices: 480 (sold out), 680, 980, 1280, 1680, 2580(sold out)RMB
