VANOC and anti-Olympic protesters make for unlikely allies

Is it the work of marauding protesters? Or has VANOC come up with a new way to combat Olympic ambush marketing?


 


I passed this on the way into the office this morning. Question: Is it the work of marauding protesters hell-bent on disrupting the Olympics? Or has VANOC come up with a new way to combat Olympic ambush marketing? One can almost imagine official paint-bomb squads fanning out across the city on the hunt for counterfeit Quatchis and unlicensed Olympic O’s, like these ones, which have been hanging in this eyeglass store on Denman St. for the last couple of weeks.

  1. I wouldn't put it past VANOC. Whatever they have to do to protect that disgusting symbol that is the Owelympic brand.

  2. This is another example of why Vancouver isn`t a fit city to host such an event. Glaring poverty side by side with obscene wealth. "going for the gold" is a good motto for this Olympics because that`s what it is all about money. With their constant bragging abou "owning the podium" Canada has made itself look ridiculous. I hope Vancouver residents are happy when they get the bill for the worst Olympics ever!
