A word from the chairs

Merci à tous, et bienvenue dans notre monde.

We are thrilled to have the opportunity to host the 67th Worldcon in Montréal. After three years of bidding, there are many people we need to thank for this opportunity. All those who pre-supported, everyone who voted, the site selection administrator and his team, as well as the organizers of Nippon 2007. Last but not least, our volunteers, staff and bid committee, who did everything from manning tables, throwing parties, translating and proofing text, and even acting as pack mules. The contributions and support of all these people is the reason we are here today.

But it’s not over! In fact, it’s just begun. We now have to organize a convention; a convention which we hope many of you will be able to attend, and just as many, to enjoy.

This convention will be the fifth Canadian Worldcon and the first one in Montréal, which means Anticipation will also be bringing a fifth language to the Worldcon: French. With roots going back to Jules Verne, George Méliès and J.H. Rosny Sr., French SF is amongst the oldest in the world and its contributors are still creating interesting and thought provoking works today.

There are whole universes out there that we hope you will discover with us.
