#CANOC🌴 President Brain Lewis said that after the International Olympic Committee (IOC) re-affirmed its rule to ban demonstrations during the Tokyo games, Rule 50 is not a rule that he can in good conscience support.
"You have nearly 15,000 athletes between the Olympic Games and Paralympics; usually 11,000 for the former and 4,000 for the latter."
“Only just over 3,500 athletes responded to a survey? 70% said that rule 50 shouldn’t be changed. That’s less than 2,500 athletes out of 15,000? Something doesn’t sound too right."
The majority of athletes that responded, what continents did they come from?” Lewis questioned.
