Olympics distracts from poverty

<p></p>




Re: "Four charged in anti-2010 demonstration," Feb. 14:


I say good on those who protested at the unveiling of the Olympic clock.


Civil disobedience is sometimes the best way (to bring focus to) the real issues. The economic disparity that exists in our province in these times of a booming economy is shameful.


The only real purpose (of the Olympics) is to distract us all from the lack of government (action surrounding) the very real and important issue of poverty. The real hooligans at the clock unveiling were those wearing the suits and uniforms.
