Shaw couldn’t be reached for comment.

Furlong fully expects the IOC evaluation commission to make some arrangement to hear from those opposed to hosting the Games.

He hopes any protest will be peaceful.

"I would hope that people who decide to show their disapproval will do it within the law," said Furlong.

One protest group, Oust the Olympics or Out-O, has said it is planning a number of protests including "food activism" and blockades.

On its Web site Oust the Olympics states it is planning high-risk and low-risk actions under a campaign it’s terming "The Gloves Come Off."
