Simple Plan is one of Canada's most successful punk-pop acts, featuring a lineup comprised

of former high school pals Pierre Bouvier, Jeff Stinco, David Desrosiers, Sebastien Lefebvre and Chuck Comeau. Originally founded in 1999, the multi-award winning band toured around Canada gaining popularity by connecting with their listeners on more than just a superficial level. Pierre Bouvier states “We know what kids go through; because we've been through that …We want kids to feel like we're talking about them and for them”. This relationship has led Simple Plan to emerge as one of the preeminent Pop Punk bands in the world. They landed show dates with the annual Vans Warped Tour in 2001 as well as spots with Toronto's Snow Jam. By now, Simple Plan had a spunky, energetic punk sound, textured like Cheap Trick, but raw like Pennywise.

In 2002, Simple Plan headed into the studio to make a record. Simple Plan’s debut album, No Pads, No Helmets…Just Balls received rave reviews and achieved double platinum status, selling well over 2 million copies. Their second album, Still Not Getting Any..., followed next year and did very well, scoring he hits "Crazy" and "Welcome to My Life." Simple Plan continues to release more studio and live albums. The band's newest and fourth studio album titled Get Your Heart On was released on June 21st 2011. The album’s first single "Jet Lag" has been soaring at radio charts globally since its release in early May. Their second single “Astronaut” promises to be a stellar hit! 

On January 6th, Simple Plan will have a one-night performance in Yugong Yishan, which will be a night to remember and the perfect way to start the year off. They will not only be showcasing their newest works but also displaying their bests. Presale Tickets start at 280 rmb for pre-sale, 350 rmb for door.



Remembrance Day Poppies

Remembrance Day Poppies are now available at the main gate of the Canadian Embassy in Beijing on

19 Dongzhimenwai Dajie

Please remember to make a donation for those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
      Between the crosses, row on row,
   That mark our place; and in the sky
   The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
   Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
         In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:

To you from failing hands we throw
   The torch; be yours to hold it high.
   If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
         In Flanders fields.

         by John McCrae 1919

Come enjoy light snacks and champagne at the reception, followed by a delicious dinner buffet with wine, and a performance by the UBC Persian Music Ensemble to celebrate the launch of the Department’s new Persian Language and Iranian Studies Initiative.
