Canada's Maclean's Looks at Mormon Influence on Olympics
TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA -- Salt Lake City has drawn heavily on
Calgarians for help in preparing for the '02 Olympics (Calgary hosted
them in '88), notes Maclean's, Canada's national newsmagazine. It
reminds the reporter of a traditional Canadian city: clean, safe (in
spite of the gun-friendly laws -- on the other hand, a record amount
has been spent on security),and friendly.
The influence of the Church and what the Church has and has not done
to prevent these from being the "Mo-lympics" are covered in good
detail and, overall, quite fairly.
