The olympic torch should not be carried in on the backs of the poor and marginalized.

The thing is that I agree with the messages - I work with the most disadvantaged people in the lower mainland trying to get them out of the most dire situations. I see the direct impact of cuts made in 2002 today. When I do public speaking I acknowledge that I am on unceded Coast Salish lands. The protesters words aren't wrong, its the way they behave.

Exactly.

One of the reasons why I hate the Olympics is because I can't stand large crowds, especially when commuting. The protestors are just adding to the crowds.

Yeah, I'd agree with that.
