You Can't Fly

You Can't Fly

Since the one Billion (notice the capital B) dollars we are spending on security for the olympics (notice the small o) is really only meant to be used against protesters and the downtown east-side, these guys won't be able to fly during "the event".

The reasoning is that most flights that end up in the inner harbour start off in tiny, security deficient airports and therefor are a threat. But, lord knows, we couldn't dig into our taser, pepper spray and baton budget to fund some, you know, security. It is only a billion dollars and those protesters won't tase themselves...

I hear Poland is sending a whole team of people.

So Harbour Air, Saltspring Air, and whomever else are going to have to eat a half-month of revenue.

Can you hear that? That's the trickle down of money that these games are going to shower all over BC.

BC, The Best Place On Earth™ (Ha!)
