Bendy stretchy gang goes gold

Lululemon Athletica was publicly scolded by VANOC for unveiling a cheeky product line in honour of a "Cool Sporting Event That Takes Place in British Columbia Between 2009 & 2011."

For the whole story:
Vancouver Observer

A spokesperson says VANOC is "disappointed" that someone is trying to profit from the Olympics.

Imagine the nerve! Trying to profit from the Olympics?

I guess CEO John Furlong and his nine Executive Vice Presidents are not profiting. Probably working for $1 a year or, perhaps, for the $8 an hour minimum wage that Gordon Campbell thinks adequate for many. And, of course, Intrawest ULC probably is making Whistler Blackcomb available without cost to VANOC for the Games. And, the construction industry of BC built those facilities at cost. No effort to profit. Right?

Truly, this is a scandal. Tax paying businesses in Vancouver should leave profit making opportunities to multi-national corporations who pay homage to the Olympic movement in appropriate ways. (Swiss bank transfers accepted.)
