2010 Gold Rush has learned that the Olympic flag will be raised on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on Feb. 12 to celebrate the one-year countdown to the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. Likewise, the Paralympic flag will be raised there on March 12.
One would have to assume the same will happen at the Legislature in Victoria.
Of course, Feb. 12 is day three of the fifth session of the 38th British Columbia Parliament and the Opposition New Democrats are bound to raise something else: more questions about the true costs and risks of the Games to B.C. taxpayers. The Liberals have done their best to skate, slide and ski around the big snowball.
Feb. 12 is also the three-month countdown to the next provincial election in British Columbia. Will Liberal Premier Gordon Campbell complete his hat-trick or stumble and fall on the way to the finish line? Three months is an eternity in the world of politics.
