Olympic Believers

Looks like there’s some genuine excitement building as the Olympic flame finally enters Vancouver…

Seems incredible that I went out and watched this thing travel through my neck of the woods on a sunny fall morning the day after it set off way back in October!

Opening of the B.C. Legislature

I had no idea we had such elaborate ceremony for when the legislature opens. As you can see it’s certainly not much of a crowd attraction. Too bad they don’t sit in the summer when the tourists could watch it.

Update: A handful of protesters gathering just an hour before Stephen Harper arrives to address the B.C. legislature.

Not a terribly impressive turnout. Where are all those anti-prorogation Facebookers?

Update2: Another one Campbell’s extremely useless press scrums as he enters caucus.

Update3: Harper and Campbell didn’t speak to reporters when they entered or left the chamber.
