Seeing Doug grinning * in that pic reminded me of what our late Mayor Rob had to say at City Hall, "Those Oriental people work like dogs. They work their hearts out. They are workers non-stop. They sleep beside their machines. That's why they're successful in life. I went to Seoul, South Korea, I went to Taipei, Taiwan. I went to Tokyo, Japan. That's why these people are so hard workers (sic). I'm telling you, the Oriental people, they're slowly taking over."
* The exact opposite scowling facial expression, negative head and body language of Mayor Rob ( who, as Mayor, made a point of standing well away from the others ) when they hoisted the Rainbow flag at City Hall!
This is how we fly guest flags at City Hall. Separate and apart from the other flags. I suspect
Vancouver may have a similar protocol.
