[Story Ticker] 29 October

GRN correspondent Brandy Yanchyk is closely following the build up to the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. There has been as much controversy as excitement during the run up.

Protest group, the Olympic Resistance Network believe that the Games are being held on “stolen Native land”.

However this is also the first time in history that Indigenous peoples have been recognized as official partners in hosting the Olympic Games.
