Inside the Olympics Industry - Whistler Watch Poster

Poster produced by Whistler Watch and The Council of Canadians, advertising a talk called "Inside the Olympic Industry" by Dr. Helen Lensky on the negative aspects of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games. A list on the poster argues these negative impacts include the destruction of natural habitat, the forced removal of residents of East Vancouver, the harassment of Olympics critics by the police, and the creation of long-lasting debt. Olympic supporters, critics, VANOC staff, athletes, ISU, and the "curious" are all invited to attend. The talk was held at the Whistler Public Library on Saturday, September 12th [2009], at 6:30 pm.
