Mayor to VANOC. Free the Flame

The people have spoken. VANOC, tear down this wall!

“I’ve seen crowds peering through the fence (at the flame),” Robertson said. “We want that flame to be more accessible.”

That‘s an understatement. For me, it’s not even about access just to the flame. As alluded to previously, I think it’s an act of treachery to any tourism worker in BC’s Lower Mainland that the people are being kept back from the most beautiful spot of waterfront in all of Vancouver.

Let the Olympic flame burn true (North, strong) and free

UPDATE: Democracy works! Apparently, VANOC didn’t want to fully adopt my suggestion, but politics is the art of compromise.
