Vancouver 2010 Opening Ceremony Poetry by Shane Koyczan

Comments 3 by Rebecca Bollwitt

During the Vancouver 2010 Opening Ceremony slam poet Shane Koyczan took to centre stage to recite, “We Are More”. Born in Yellowknife and raised in Penticton BC, his poem (that was first featured in Ottawa on Canada Day in 2007) rippled through the hearts of Canadians everywhere as all cheered for his inspiring words.

You can follow him on Twitter @Koyczan on Twitter and read up on more of his work on his main website.

Update February 24, 2010 I met Shane this morning and John Biehler took a photo of us.
