According to Stewart Bell of the National Post on Saturday, the Canadian federal government is cautioning Canadians of attending the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.

The concerns are because Islamic terrorists have threatened to attack the Olympics, and that the airports and border crossings were "vulnerable".

According to CTV News, the Canadian government is encouraging Canadian tourists to show caution when taking public transportation and attending events where large crowds are expected. The largest attended events are expected to be the opening and closing ceremonies.

The Canadian government is also advising Canadians to avoid participating in any demonstrations and follow the directions of authorities at all times.

The RCMP meanwhile has been working with Russian authorities to protect Canadian athletes.

This will be the second Olympic Games in the history of Russia. Moscow hosted the 1980 Olympic Games, however those Olympic Games were boycotted by Canada after the Canadian government objected to the Soviet invasion in Afghanistan.
