Miss Universe Canada: Natalie Glebova

I pulled this from the Montreal Gazette yesterday:
"I was surprised," she said of the initial muted reaction, during her first official Canadian appearance, held yesterday at the Casino de Montreal. She looked luminous despite having just stepped off a 16-hour flight from a 10-day South African tour, where she learned about the region as part of her new role in spreading AIDS awareness.

Natalie Glebova with the flag...woohoo!

Beauty pageants are "not in our culture," and Nat's probably right...I'll admit I don't watch these things, but a Canadian actually won something on the international stage (I'm not counting hockey) which is nice for a change! Reminds me of a line from Rick Mercer, "Canada is going to invest $110 million to win more medals in the upcoming Olympics...that's a whole lot of Bronze!"

Where's the coverage? Only the second Canadian to win in 53 YEARS...I didn't even know she was here in Montreal until she was gone...Canadian = Miss Universe, doesn't happen everyday if you ask me.
