Philip LeeIt was announced on June 19 that Philip Lee Shiu Lun (Form 5, 1959~60) had been appointed to be the next lieutenant-governor of Manitoba. He will take office on August 1, 2009.

"For decades, Mr. Lee has played an integral role in Winnipeg’s cultural community and has been widely recognized for his efforts in promoting a positive cultural awareness among Canadians of all ethnic and cultural backgrounds. As such, he is well prepared to assume this prominent role as the Queen’s representative in our province and will bring an exciting dynamic to this office." -- Statement by Manitoba Premier, Gary Doer.

Philip had just organized a mini-reunion of his buddies in Wah Yan, a group called "Cheetahs and Friends", in Toronto from June 17 to June 20. His reminiscences of their school days are worth the long and short hauls of his friends from Singapore, LA, Edmonton and Ottawa. The Go Ahead clip from the Wah Yan International Conference, Toronto, 2002, shows why. Pictures of this gathering and a dinner hosted by Philip can be viewed here.
