Where’s national pride?

I was very disappointed with the article written by Fiona Gardiner in the Thunder Bay Source last week.

Fiona doesn’t seem to think much of us Canadians. I believe most Canadians would agree with me that these Olympics brought more unity and pride to our country than we have felt in years.

Whatever happens in this world there will always be protesters. At the Canadian Olympics there was a small minority group of people that tried to spoil the day. The most "unCanadian" part of the protesting goes to the media for giving these people publicity.

Vancouver was a beautiful choice for these great games. This pristine scenery can not be compared to any other.

Many sports do come naturally to Canadians. However, all the athletes worked long and hard to get there. It took a lot more than mom tossing them out to play.

Most Canadians feel that it is a great achievement just to compete at the Olympics, I am sure. Hats off to all who made it.

For a person who is proud to live in Thunder Bay, it is just plan weird that you would put our great country down.
