OTTAWA — Canada’s 2010 Winter Olympics organizing committee was
unapologetic Monday for limiting foreign athletes’ access to venues to
train, in order to give Canada’s team a home turf advantage.

"We’re
doing the best we can to give them (Team Canada) the advantages of
being at home, as every other country in the world would do," said John
Furlong, chief executive officer of the Vancouver Games organizing
committee.

Lets see… all the other countries have done it, including the U.S.

We paid for the facilities… so Duh, suck it up.

Mildly competitive… maybe a small bit head strong… sometimes has an opinion… and occasionally has a requirement to be right (currently averaging 99.9% of the time). But my high level of sensitivity and empathy makes up for any of my minor faults :-)
