VANOC announced its mascots for the 2010 Olympics. Just like the official logo - the Inooshuk - we now have three of the ugliest mascots they could possibly find for our official Olympic mascots. Of course they allowed children to choose. Not many adults care for them.
They are Miga the sea bear (whatever that is supposed to be) Quatchi the Sasquatch ( oh please!) and finally Sumi the Thunderbird (looks like a flying squirrel). None of the choices say anything about British Columbia or Canada for that matter. In fact they look more Japanese than anything. We are now hosting the Japanese Olympics. Heck I would have settled for a couple of Royal Canadian Mounties on horseback with five rings around them. At least I would know it's Canadian.
