Former 2010 Winter Olympics boss John Furlong has given his first major speech since a newspaper published allegations that he abused First Nations students more than 40 years ago. Furlong told a welcoming crowd at the Vancouver Board of Trade that when the article was published in 2012, he felt like many of his friends disappeared. (Journalist Laura Robinson lost a defamation lawsuit against Furlong last month when a judge ruled he had a right to defend himself from her attacks against him.)
