This year is the 40th anniversary of the terrorist attack on Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics. There have been calls for a 2 minute silence at the opening ceremony but this has been refused by the International Olympic Commitee. I wonder why? Who does it offend to remember the innocent whose only crime was to represent their country in sport, on the one occasion, every 4 years where nations are supposed to put aside their hatreds and compete against each other in a spirit of hope and redemption.
Let us call on our representatives to hold a 2 minute silence. Canada is leading the way.
