The Guardian has a poll asking if the United States should boycott the Winter Olympics in Russia in 2014 because of the law — signed by Vladimir Putin on Sunday — that stigmatizes gay people and bans “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations,” fining those who talk to children about the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities or hold gay pride rallies etc.
So far, the poll — which closes in one day — is showing a majority voting to boycott the Games.
One would have to assume that if the United States were to boycott the Winter Olympics in Russia, Canada would follow suit. So, Canadians might vote in the poll keeping our own country in mind.
As well, it wouldn’t surprise me if someone starts (or has already started) a White House Petition asking the United States to boycott the Russian Winter Olympics.
Yes, this could, umm, snowball . . .
