For the week of December 12, 2021:
Canada has joined the growing diplomatic boycott of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics over China’s human rights atrocities.
But a poll by Vancouver’s ResearchCo suggests Canadians want a full athletic boycott. They’re worried about the health and safety of maple leaf athletes in the country that kidnapped Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor and let the novel coronavirus go out of control.
ResearchCo president Mario Canseco joins theBreaker.news Podcast host Bob Mackin to discuss that poll and a recent poll showing British Columbians are not sold on the idea of hosting the Winter Olympics for a second time. Hear highlights of the Dec. 10 announcement of the Vancouver 2010 Four Host First Nations reuniting to front a real estate and tourism industry driven bid for the 2030 Games.
Plus commentary and Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest headlines.
