MLA Harry Bloy seems to give off the vibe 2/12 could be the next 9/11. Bloy called Olympic protestors "terrorists" with "limited intellect."

This is not going over so well. Bloggers, chat boards, and former municipal hall allies are not taking kindly to the remarks.

Bloy's focus is on the "economic benefits" and does not see anything wrong with his comments.

Comments like these may goad anti-Olympic activists into more aggressive behaviour. Premier Campbell and his team should keep an eye on rogue MLAs so that they do not further embarass B.C. when the world is watching in three months.
