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.
