Happy the NHL, and Canada, will go to the Olympics, for the players, as well as all the other athletes.. but absolutely disgusted the IOC chose China to host in the first place. With China's history of systemic human rights abuses, invasion of and take over of Tibet, ongoing genocide of the Uyghur people, not to mention the kidnapping, show trial, and holding for ransom of Canadian citizens, China should never be hosting any international event, by any organization, that pretends to support human rights and world peace.
But, based on the history of the IOC, all the way back to its support of Nazi Germany, one should not be surprised, the IOC licks the boots of the CCP for cash. The IOC is one reason they invented Swiss bank accounts.

I'd love to see the Canadian team march into the Olympic closing ceremonies carrying banners saying "Stop the Genocide, Free the Uyghur People", and/or "CCP.. Free Michael Kovrig - Free Michael Spavor"

In the IOC’s defence, China bribed them pretty heavily and it’s rude to not award the Olympics to the people that pay you the most.


Hey I guess you're obligated to always take the high bid, under the table that is, I think its actually written into the IOC charter!
Putin, CCP.. all champions for human rights! Cue the Taliban bid for "Afghanistan 2034"!

IOC bribes in exchange for the ultimate in Nationalist Propaganda to the masses.. Priceless!!

Should be a MasterCard ad.


Afghanistan just doesn't have the money to bribe right now.

I wouldn't be the least surprised if we get Riyadh 2032 though.

In the winter of course.


Haven't you heard? The CCP is already in there partnering with the new Taliban overlords in Afghanistan in order to mine their mineral deposits, estimated between $1 Trillion to $3 Trillion. CCP were just biding their time, likely helped finance the Taliban for decades, time to cash in on the investment. I think they'll have what it takes to pay off the IOC .. chump change! :)

How China may benefit from Afghanistan’s estimated $3 trillion mineral reserves following the Taliban takeover

Quote:

The fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban has led to grave concerns about the safety of Afghan citizens and foreigners alike, but also raised questions about the future of the nation’s vast mineral reserves, once valued at as much as $3 trillion.

The chaos may offer China, which dominates the world market for rare earths, widely used in technology, to step in to develop the mineral reserves, which also include lithium, used in the manufacture of batteries.

“Chinese dealmakers have their bags packed, and will arrive on the first flights after the airports open,” said Byron King, geologist and mining and energy writer for Agora Financial.

“People who understand exploration have long looked at Afghanistan with desire,” he told MarketWatch, adding that Afghanistan has routinely sent representatives to international mining conferences in the past 20 years to “give talks about the mineral endowment.”

Data from the U.S. Geological Survey indicates that Afghanistan may hold unexplored mineral reserves worth as much as $1 trillion, and the government of Afghanistan estimated the figure at as high as $3 trillion, according to an article posted in 2012 by the Embassy of Afghanistan, Washington D.C.
