Unveiling the lions
At the base of the Arch there are two carved stone lions that guard the Gateway. Both were covered with red cloths, which were removed at the end of the ceremonies. Cloths were removed by representatives of the community:
Diane Holmes, Peter So, Larry Lee, Peter Yeung, Frank Ling, Bill Joe, Ron Tomlinson, and Marion Hum.
A traditional dragon dance followed the unveiling. There were two parent dragons and a baby dragon.
Some of the excitement and sounds of the opening ceremonies were captured in this CBC Morning show broadcast: http://www.ericdarwin.ca/downloads/CBC_Archway.mp3
