Christopher Shaw is a vocal and up-front highly visible critic of the 2010 Olympics.

The RCMP are now questioning his friends and relatives. The police show up at people's homes and places of work and school.

News flash:

Terrorists are very quiet.

They sneak about in the dead of night and under many innocent guises.

They don't advertise their opinions in front of the Art Gallery.

I don't know Mr. Shaw. Maybe he has a lab in his basement. Maybe, like me and many of you, he questions the enormous expense of these games in the light of more pressing issues on which public funds might be spent.

Thus he is acting as a responsible, thinking citizen.

For this, his friends and family should be harassed?

This Olympics has become an increasing tire iron in the spokes of democracy.

It is becoming an embarrassment.

It almost seems like the "games" are BC's version of 9/11...used to remove rights at every turn! Disgusting!
