Your Excellencies, Your Worship, Honorable Ministers, Ladies and Gentlemen.

In more senses than one, the sun has shone on this, our first formal visit to British Columbia and to its beautiful capital, Vancouver. My wife and I have traveled extensively in recent years and I can honestly say that I cannot recollect any country nor any city which has welcomed us so warmly, so kindly and so generously as Vancouver.

Excerpt of comments made by the Aga Khan, spiritual leader of Ismaili Muslims, to the Citizen's editorial board during his Ottawa visit on June 7

The industrialised world really has developed in the Judeo-Christian context of society and the Islamic world has been significantly absent from general education. I am not pointing at Canada. I am saying generally in the western world.

Q. As spiritual leader of the world's 20 million Ismailis, the Aga Khan is a direct descendant of Mohammed. As a political and a social leader He is a man of enormous wealth and responsibility. The Aga Khan is a friend of the Shah of Iran. Many of His followers live there. I asked Him in Ottawa yesterday what someone in his situation might do when a country such as Iran is thrown into the turmoil and crisis.
