Response from the crowd ranged from intrigue to confusion to hostility.

As the Olympic torch wound its way through Edmonton we examined the underbelly of the games and talked to those resisting the 2010 Olympics; featuring an interview with Billie Pierre from the Nlaka'Pamux Nation in the lower mainland on the impact of Olympic "development". We also spoke to three Edmontonians detained by police for chanting anti-Olympic slogans.
