Gordon Campbell and Prime Minister Stephen Harper shared a Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games photo-op today in the premier's office - sending video cameras in first to record the staged event and then still cameras. We were part of the first wave. But it was when the video cameras left that things got interesting. Commenting on the Olympic red mittens he was wearing, the premier said, "I like the thumbs up." Chuckling, the prime minister commented, "You can't put anything up but the thumbs" before telling reporters, "He can't give you the finger in those things." To which the premier replied, "I've never experienced that." This, according to print reporters in the room.
