i would love to go watch hockey but there is no way i could afford it short of taking a second mortgage on my house. i live in BC but 12 hours away. i have to pay extra taxes for years to come and the community i live in will see absolutely no benefit from the games. yes i am bitter. i have friends and family that have lost their jobs, homes, and relationships because of the financial downturn and the politicians can justify how many billions in cost over-runs. makes me sick.
