how to run a school 2010 winter games style

my "peaceful protest" of the winter games.
made in conjunction with the NFB's citizenshift program.
if you are interested in more details about the program's dossier,
you can feel free to check it out at the citizenshift website

*just as a side note here, i have nothing against the idea of the actual "games" or the athletes themselves, i think they deserve all the respect in the world. just the ludicrous amount of money spent on hosting the games that i feel could be channeled into more meaningful avenues.
erecting a 9.2 million dollar temporary "canada" pavilion in a parking lot where people sleep seems mildly bizarre.
hope that makes sense.

HA!
Amen to that.

Though there are places far worse off than us, I still think it's funny that our government has all the money in the world for everything except education, care for the poor, disabled and elderly.

A society is best judged by how well it treats it's poor.

When the games are over, we'll see who benefits most. I'm guessing it won't be any of the above.

Nice dude! Very worthy cause too, it's real dumb to spend that kind of money on sport at any time but especially with the money the way it is at the moment!

Nice work. We had the same problem in Portugal with Euro 2004. A country with a lot of basic problems like schools and hospitals, and a amount of money spend in football stadiums. They are now almost empty of people...
