Canadian G-8 Delegation in Town

The G-8 is still four months away, but Savannah has been busy all week greeting delegations from around the world. Saturday morning, Savannah mayor Dr. Otis Johnson presented the key to the city to the Canadian delegation. They're visiting to make their own arrangements before the June summit.

Over the last few weeks, delegations from Japan, Russia, France, Italy, Germany and Great Britain have also toured the city, sampling some of Savannah's fine cuisine and visiting the historic sites.

"Canada and the US have truly a great bond of friendship and a lot of commonalities," said a spokesman for the delegation. "We very much appreciate the hospitality and we're looking forward to coming back here in June."

The 30th G-8 summit will be held from June 8 through 10 on Sea Island, Georgia.
