City Councillors Vote To Pursue Olympic Bid
Calgary City Councillors voted 9-6 in favour of pursing the 2026 Olympic Bid. I heard the price tag was in the neighbourhood of 4.8 billion dollars. Guess who gets to pay for that? We have watched small businesses go bankrupt, we have seen failing infrastructure, we have watched our neighbours struggling to make ends meet. I don't think this is the right time for us to commit to this amount of tax dollars being spent on 16 days.
There will be a plebicite to let us have our say. How would you vote? For me, it's a no.
