Olympics 2026

Lots of people have asked me about the Olympics – here is views on this

I would vote YES on the 2026 Calgary Olympics.

Here is my rationale and extended answer from a one word YES

The new $925 million USD the IOC put out to host cities will go along way in improving Calgary and I think this would create significant employment in the run up as well as put Calgary and region back on the International Spotlight. https://gamesbids.com/eng/featured/ioc-launches-overhauled-2026-olympic-winter-games-bid-process/ 


I think we can pull this off at worst case not being worse off of not doing it. I would also ensure Calgary is splitting the risk with the IOC and not having the deal one sided or putting risk to our tax payers or citizens.
