Hook up the wagon, we’re going to the neigbours.

I wonder how or if the rest of the world can comprehend how much free space we have in Canada and how modest our population really is in numbers compared to the land mass area of the country itself.

I mean for arguments sake Russia and Canada are in the same size bracket for land mass. They are the two largest countries in the world in that regard yet Russia has almost five times more citizens residing withing their borders.

The United States you could say is in that size bracket albeit a bit smaller and they have ten times the population as Canada. Ten times!

China and India of course fit right in here but of course we’re getting redundant when the land mass continues to shink and the populations are running willy nilly over a billion citizens.

Canada has 33 million.

Kenya has 31 million and falling cramped into an area barely bigger than the state of New York and only a third the size of Texas. New York State and Texas have populations in and around 20 and 23 million.

Morocco, Uganda and Poland are all in simlar living arrangements and two of those four countries are killing themselves over land.

Finally I’ll leave you with one last wiki’d tidbit of land mass knowledge, Japan has a land mass of 145,883 square miles – the size of New York State – and a population that challanges the entire United States for total volumn. 127,433,494 citizens as of 2007, in an area the size of New York. 145,883 square miles.

Canada has 3,854,085 square miles.

I guess it’s not so bad to be a little bit cold.

Broolyn Decker

Brooklyn Decker was born in Kettering Ohio in 1987. Her parents were medical professionals who love animals which is why Brooklyn wanted to become a veterinarian when she grew up. When she was in her early teens Brooklyn was discovered in a mall in North Carolina. Her modeling agency got her to enter many competitions. In 2003 she won the model of the Year award. As her popularity grew Brooklyn was posing in Teen Magazine, Vogue, Seventeen, FHM, Glamour, Spin and Cosmopolitan. She decided to leave Carolina and move to New York. Within 2 months of moving to New York she was asked to audition for Sports Illustrated. She hit the gym and ate healthy for 3 weeks and her determination paid off. She was selected to be on the cover of the 2006 edition. Victoria’s Secret caught wind of Brooklyn and got her to pose for their swimsuit issue. She got engaged to tennis player Andy Roddick and the two will be married sometime in 2009.

Boycotting the Olympics

I’ve felt this way for a while. I never thought China deserved to be awarded an Olympic Games based on the human rights issues that go on in their country and the poverty that the majority of their citizens live in.

Unfortunately the IOC didn’t feel the same as myself, as they seemingly turned a blind eye on the atrocities that the Chinese government inflict on their own people and saw only the booming economy when awarding the 2008 summer games and not the veiled lies that the Chinese bid commitee promised.

At the time that the games were awarded the Chinese Olympic bid committee along with the Chinese government said that journalists would have unfettered internet (uncensored) access to work with reporting the games.

Now however, the Chinese government has backtracked on their promise to the media by saying that the media will not have full uncensored internet access but instead that they will have ‘sufficient’ access to the World Wide Web to report on the Games.

Internet pages containing the word Tibet will be blocked in the media village along with Amnesty International pages and any other page that the government doesn’t want their people and now apparently the world to know exist.

Here is my plea;

Boycott the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games completely.

Boycott NBC during the Olympics and boycott the Games sponsors and the Beijing 2008 partners during the course of the games if not longer.

That list includes Worldwide Olympic sponsors Coca Cola, General Electric (GE), Johnson & Johnson, Kodak, McDonald’s, Manulife, Omega, Panasonic, Samsung, VISA and Lenovo.

Beijing 2008 partners Adidas, Air China, Volkswagen, Bank of China, CNC, CNPC, Sinopec, PICC and State Grid.

Finally minor sponsors and suppliers UPS, Haier, Budweiser, sohu.com, Tsingtao, Yanjing Beer, BHPbilliton, Staples, TechnoGym, Great Wall, BEIFA, Price Waterhouse Cooper, Mengna, SCHENKER Logistics, YA DU and others that you can find here.

The ‘others’ I’m unsure of as they are written in a text that suspiciously resembles a Chinese dialect.

However if you do sympathize with the little guy and have the same views towards this issue as myself join with me in turning a cold shoulder to the games and her sponsors.

The athletes, they won’t care, in fact I beg that they’ll understand. They are there to win, exposure can come after they do that. And if you really want to catch some of the action, catch it on YouTube.

Some sponsors will be harder than others to boycott, I don’t remember the last time Kodak had anything to do with my life, or Air China for that matter but I’m a two can of Coke a day kinda guy and have a guilty pleasure in McDonald‘s. But I’m going to take a break for a few weeks if not longer.

The Games which are about human triumphs, being held in a country where the ‘people’ have no say says to me that the IOC is more interested in money than the plight of the oppressed. In my mind, that makes the IOC no better than the government hosting the 2008 Games.

Can one voice make a difference?

Here’s hoping it can.
