LETTER: Province bows to IOC in female ski jumper ruling

Dear editor,

Last week the three male judges of the BC Appeal Court ruled that they agreed
with the rules of the International Olympic Committee and the female ski jumpers were banned in partaking in the 2010 Games.

In other words, the I.O.C. regulations overrule the human rights laws that are supposed to protect the citizens of this weak-kneed country.

One can only imagine the number of positive things that have happened in
the winter sports field since many years ago Rossland's ski racer Nancy
Greene won her gold medal.
