1. The provincial government funded an invitation-only party for the opening of the Richmond speed skating oval with a half million dollars, and the government came of with this money on two days' notice.
VANOC should be ashamed of themselves for requesting this money, and they should return it.
2. Three Crown corporations, B.C. Hydro, ICBC, and the B.C. Lottery Corporation, have spent more than $1.4 million on Olympic tickets.
This money could be recovered by simply re-selling the tickets. eBay will work.
