    Would You Attend Sochi Olympics?

    Some of Canada's Olympic team members' family members are not going to be attending the games as they feel it is not safe. I know Luongo (Vancouver Canucks goalie) does not want his family to attend. I don't blame him, I would not want to attend given the threat of terrorism.

    I probably would. I'd stick to my hotel and to venues as much as possible, but as a matter of principle I try not to let terrorists, well, terrorize me.

    Not a hope. I want to visit Russia one day, but this is way too terrifying for me. When analysts are saying it's not a matter of if there will be an attack, there is something very very wrong.

    I personally am very worried about an attack, but not for my own safety if I was going, which I am not. I think if one were to stay away from the opening ceremonies, you are pretty safe....but there does exist the very real possibility of an attack
    which would put the games on hold or have them canceled. It is so sad. It is so hard to get into the terrorists' minds....if they threaten an attack but don't carry it out, they cost Putin untold money trying to stop one...if they launch an attack, the whole world will hate them and care not what Putin does to them and their families in the aftermath.

    Absolutely not. $750 a night for a 3 stars hotel? No thanks. They can enjoy their own stupid dog and pony show.

    If I had the money to do it comfortably and see all the events I wanted - Yes.

    I wouldn't attend because of Russia's persecution of LGBT persons. I am boycotting any Russian products for the foreseeable future.

    Not sure that that's necessarily the most effective thing to do in this case.
