I saw the Olympic FLAME!


People have been protesting the Olympics here in Toronto, boasting posters that read: “Olympics on stolen native land.”  What’s wrong with people??

I have a short fuse for ignorance.  Yes, the Olympics is costing Canada a bit of change to host; but according to City TV, “Several hundred thousand visitors are expected to pour more than a billion dollars into the economy during the first two months of 2010.”

Costs usually get headaches, and benefits get yawns; so I was aghast that there were Canadians protesting the Olympics as the torch went through Nathan Phillips Square last night.  That was until I got stuck in traffic today…

God bless Canada 🙂
