Let's put aside controversy of agent provocateurs (and see here) and anarchist violence and focus on CANADIAN GOLD.
It has been a long time coming. First gold on home soil. Bring on the nationalism- It's a proud day.

-First Olympic Gold for Canada on home soil
Thank you, Alexandre Bilodeau.
Alex Bilodeau of Rosemere, Que., became an instant hero on Sunday night when the 22-year-old captured the gold medal in the men’s moguls competition — the first time a Canadian has won Olympic gold on home soil.
Bilodeau scored 26.75 points to edge Dale Begg-Smith, who was born in Vancouver but skis for Australia. Begg-Smith, the gold medallist from the 2006 Games in Turin, had 26.58 points.RECOMMEND this Post on Progressive Bloggers CLICK HERE!
