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.
This was an amazing performance at the Enbridge Stage at the 2007 Calgary Stampede. It was an interesting cross of western and belly dance styles of dress and performance.
