The Post editorial board: Phil Fontaine’s cynical threat to protest the 2010 Winter OIympics in Vancouver

Posted: April 21, 2008, 12:52 PM by Marni Soupcoff

Phil Fontaine is no doubt speaking the truth when he says that the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver are likely to provide an occasion for aboriginal protest across Canada — and that this protest may, like the ongoing pro-Tibetan festival of chaos surrounding the Olympic torch, take disruptive forms. “We [Indians] find the Tibet situation compelling,” the Grand Chief of the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) said at a press conference Thursday, sending a coded message whose meaning is quite obvious.

VICTORIA — British Columbia’s child-protection system, from the front lines to government board rooms, needs to reflect deeply on the deaths of four children if it wants to prevent further deaths or injuries, says a report by the province’s independent children’s watchdog.
