Canada Should Boycott Olympic Games In China
How can Canada send its athletes to a country that has no respect for human rights, suppresses freedom, and just flat out murders people:
Canada should take a stand, because everything this country supposedly stands for on the international stage, is presently being mocked, in the most heinous way.
The main rationale for having the games in China, the thinking it would move the government forward, the international attention would bring some reform. What has become painfully obvious, the world will celebrate sport, give China a platform, while people are tortured and killed. Quite a backdrop. What a disgrace. It's actually a pretty easy call when you think about it, Canada should boycott the games in Beijing.
