Vancouver raises the Olympic Flag

Went to see it on my way to work today a few hours after the official ceremony and it is impressive.

Even though I’m not the biggest fan of the Olympics coming to Vancouver, I keep getting the sense that this is not Canada’s Winter Olympics but the Vancouver / Whistler’s Olympics.

It is probably my ambivalence towards Canada east of the Rocky Mountains – I grew up in Toronto and have lived in BC since 1981 – that makes me feel this way.

For the moment, I’m going to enjoy it.
