Apparently Asian-Canadians are not into the Olympic spirit. Did Vancouver have the whitest opening ceremonies ever?

Athletes are confused by Olympic social media rules. Check out my list of Olympic tweeters and the hashtag guide for Olympic tweets.

Are tickets needed for any of the free concerts or are they all first come first serve?

Rick said...

Tickets are only needed for Vancouver Victory Ceremonies at BC Place.

LiveCity Vancouver Downtown has limited capacity. Otherwise, everything else is pretty open and high capacity. Read the respective sites for details.

hey cool!
but as a fellow canadian asian...why are you white-washed? aren't you just canadian? you seem like a cool cat but younger asian kids shouldn't be seeing you describe yourself as white-washed as if it serves as some kind of disclaimer that you're not a FOB. you're canadian..you grew up in the west. this does not mean you were washed white. with the olympics around, a lot of youth will be visiting your page. be a positive role model to our generation and display the fact that we are asian canadians and should be proud!!
thank you!

Hi Rick! We have an official unofficial Aboriginal Artists Market at the Sinclair Centre for the artists that could not get a spot in the Aboriginal Pavillion. Can you pass by when you have time? We have a FREE EVENT there: a 15ft tipi is being painted live by renowned artist Marc Anthony Jacobs and the tipi is free for people to explore from all angles!
