London Opening also had the same issue, more or less (Pandemonium consumed most of the time). Also I think not everything was shown on today's rehearsal. 

For Toronto 2015 they kept the Donovan Bailey part secret, so I believe  will keep some of the secrets for the actual show.

Slighty dissapointed they missed a great oportunity to use these guys for the hoisting of the flags

Also, for the speeches, they will refer, once again like in Sochi, to Tomas Bach as the 1976 Olympic champion in fencing.

Like we give a damn for that russophile. <_<

^^ Apparently yes. There was a periscope vid showing the arrival of the olympic flag but it doesn't shows the hoisting and how it will be performed.

i think the peace sign is only a placemarket of the olympic rings.(i've seen pics where the peace sign is in the 'funk' section. 

it would be nothing as fancy as london (or god forbid sochi)

I disagree.    I think the international symbol of peace was deliberate and will remain as it is through the last rehearsal on wed and the OC on Frday. 

The peace symbol is very topical at the moment with all the conflict and was going on.  It linked into the video speech during the rehearsal by the UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon who talks about peace and for arms to be laid down.

well, ban ki moon talks about peace and laying down arms even olympics. 

plus the position of the sign was awkward when shown.

also the ring must shown 15 minutes from the start of the ceremony (unless the rings will be shown in the VTR)

plus a peace sign in the opening of the show look awkward.
