But CBC does not choose the flagbearer unfortunately! And if the previous CBC poll (athlete of the year) is any indication... Remember Eric Lamaze and Hickstead were overwhelmingly chosen as Athlete of the Year... nope, they did not get chosen when it was time.
I voted, but I am not holding my breath!!

I think you can vote multiple times... let's just say it was 50+ percent the other guy and 49+% Ian Millar when I voted, and now it's 50%.. 50%

I'd vote for Clara Hughes as Canada's most decorated athlete in both winter and summer Olympics. Somehow, the horse does most of the work, not the pilot.
(Darn - just Googled her - she was flag bearer at the winter Olympics two yers ago, should have remembered.) Have to think some more...

ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!!!! cleary you have NO idea what you are talking about to even think about saying the horse does all the work try something first before you bash something Ian Miller is Captain Canada and deserves 100 percent to carry the flag saying the horse does all the work is like saying the water in the pools for swimmers does all the work ...some people

The voting for the men is over and Whitfield won :( Now it's the women's turn and Clara Hughes is one of the candidates to carry the flag. However, that remark about the horse doing most of the work was pretty :lol:.

Gee! Stupidpeople, Greenie, post #1, how nice - welcome to COTH!

This bulletin board is an open discussion group where differences of opinion are aired, mostly politely. Ian would be a great ambassador, but so would others and horses do not rate so high on the general viewing public. (wish they did and we would have more coverage).

As much as I would of love to have Ian carry our flag, Simon is a wonderful choice.
