Seal Hunt opponents at Torch ceremony

Opponents of the Canadian Seal Hunt used the torch cermony as a way of getting attention for their cause. Unlike the "Olympic Resistance Network", they are not opposed to Olympics per se. It’s mainly a means of garnering public attention. I would take a wid guess they had around 20 people when I was there.

The Vancouver 2010 Olympic Flame arrived in Calgary on Monday, January 18. One of the welcoming events was held in the evening at Olympic Plaza in the downtown. Due to heavy crowds, I did’t get any good photos of the Torch or even the main stage. So, instead, I took in the surroundings.
