We have a lot of family out Vancouver way and they feel that most of the symbols of the games don't represent BC or Vancouver at all. I am expecting the Opening Ceremonies to be the same and for most Canadians, and even BC residents, to feel that it didn't represent them at all. At this point, I'm resigned to it.
    You don't like the medal presentation outfits?? I LOVE them - maybe this has something to do with the fact that I adore Aritzia ! I think they are fun, young, trendy, and totally represent the Vancouver lifestyle. Also, I like that they were designed by a Vancouver born company. I found these pictures on the Arizia site:
