So what do you think about:

B.C. gives city of Beijing gift of cedar arches gracing pavilion

By Stephanie Levitz

THE CANADIAN PRESS BEIJING - Iconic American golden arches have graced Beijing for years and now 13 Canadian ones will take a place among them. The British Columbia government has given the city the set of red cedar arches gracing a multi-million dollar centre just off Tiananmen Square. In giving the gift of the arches, which cost almost $3 million, B.C. Premier Gordon Campbell said the province wanted to recognize the special relationship between Canada and China.

Here is What I Think:

I don't understand how premier Campbell can give any thing First People Cultural to anyone. Aside from the fact he is gifting a Country that is perpetrating Genocide on its Indigenous People through a process, namely the Olympics Committee, that is one of the most greedy and uncaring Capitalist ventures in the world.

So what do you think?
