Welcome to Word of the Rings, a new Rabble.ca blog that aims to serve as a one-stop examination at what’s happening behind the scenes in the lead up to the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver and Whistler.
Pina will be your guide through these (somewhat) uncharted waters. We will get up close and personal with the powerful, yet bizarre troupe called VANOC and examine the effects of the Games on local residents, small business owners, municipal debt loads, real estate prices, the environment, the homeless and housing.
This column is meant to be interactive, so if you have a tip, idea or a complaint, please feel free to drop me an email. I'll do my best to monitor the comments and react when appropriate.
