@prologos - yes you are right, it was a gypsy, my bad, i think I remember him mentioning "gypsy" now. also yes, i was thinking the same thing about the translation. Bunn spoke quickly and said Shewfelt (Canada branch committee member) was to raise his hand if he was speaking too fast because his talk was also being translated live into French. Well, he never slowed down, and damn could that guy talk fast, i kept thinking of that during his talk that the French congregations will only get like 50% of his talk, and he kept screwing up the bible verses he said he was about to read (e.g. Luke 11:17, but meant Luke 17:11). Bunn looked to be about late 60's to mid 70's.
@wannaexit - a brother from vancouver told me the GB would often visit their conventions quite often. of course, we never, ever saw them in the middle of nowhere in Winnipeg or Alberta
@label licker - yes at the end of his talk Bunn stressed being loyal to the GB, and I think he mentioned it again in his concluding prayer, and how jehovah is entrusting them to lead the JWs. no mention of the royal commission in australia or all the child abuse news that's come out recently.
@stuckinarut2 - no, sadly there was no 10 minute rant on tight pants. next year, maybe.
also, during Jung's part, I felt really bad for the couple(s) that went up to Baker Lake to preach. It was something like -60 degrees celsius and he showed a short video of them waving in front of the Baker Lake sign and the wind was blowing like crazy and there was snow everywhere. They're spending all that time and money (their own money, too) with nothing to be gained, it's just frivolous.
