The other day, the cover of The Province announced in headline caps that two First Nations bands “hit [the] Olympic jackpot.” Said deal gives the bands a bunch of land in exchange for agreeing to have the Whistler mountains carved into huge, multi-coloured rings. A second headline in the coverage read, “Olympic-sized deal ‘a winner’.”
ONLY: So, Squamish and Lil’wat, you guys building a casino or something?
SQUAMISH AND LIL’WAT: No. Why?
ONLY: Well, “hit the jackpot,” “a winner”—
SQUAMISH AND LIL’WAT: Apparently that’s what we do.
