<insert whine about how cold it is in Vancouver>

<prepare for barrage of comments telling me that I don't know the meaning of the word "cold" until I've spent a winter in Calgary/Winnipeg/Ontario/Siberia/etc.>

So, it looks like we are going to have a referendum plebiscite on whether or not we want the 2010 Winter Olympics in Whistler, BC. I just read this morning that they're promising to make this question clear and concise. HA! Fat chance.

The referendum question should be as follows:

Olympics?

[ ] Yes           [ ] No

I read a little later today that they're calling it a "plebiscite", not a "referendum". I think this means that it'll just be something like an Opinion Poll...

Presumably because A) they won't have to spend the money on a referendum which is run like an election, but more likely B) if it's not an official referendum, they can fudge the results any way they want and do anything they want.
