A University Gets a New Coat of Arms

There’s a nice little article published May 18, 2011 on the website of the British Columbia Associate of Institutes & Universities about the unveiling of Capilano University’s brand new coat of arms by David Johnston, Governor General of Canada (or to give him his full form of address, His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada).  The arms were designed and drawn, of course, by the heralds and artists at the Canadian Heraldic Authority.
Also on hand for the presentation was Robert Watt, Rideau Herald Emeritus of the CHA, long-time resident of North Vancouver and former Chief Herald of Canada. (It’s nice to know that though he may have slowed down a little in his retirement, that Rob is keeping his hand in with heraldry in Canada.)

It’s a good article, well worth the read, and can be found on-line at: http://bcaiu.com/canadas-governor-general-unveils-caps-new-coat-of-arms
