Sep. 06 2009 -

The Dalai Lama is coming to Montreal on October 3 for a lecture at the Bell

Quebec singer-songwriter Michel Rivard will perform before the Dalai Lama
takes the stage, when the exiled spiritual leader of Tibetans will talk to
the public about the need for compassion.

The 1989 Nobel Peace Prize winner is is also expected to mention his life in
exile and his quest to eliminate nuclear weapons.

Next month's trip will be the third time the 14th Dalai Lama visits
Montreal, having been here previously in 1980 and 1993.

During the visit he will also host an invitation-only class with 500
university students pursuing degrees in education.

The Dalai Lama will talk to them on the need for secular instruction in
ethics, which is sure to strike a chord given Quebec's year-old course on
comparative religions and ethics.

Before coming to Montreal, the Buddhist leader will also tour Vancouver and
