My Position on the Olympic Bid 

Ward Sutherland
April 10th, 2018
In today’s Priorities and Finance Committee (PFC) meeting, the amendment to vote on whether to proceed or not with the Olympic bid passed 9-1. This means Calgary Council will vote on Monday April 16th on whether or not to continue to explore a possible 2026 Olympic bid.     
On April 16th, I will be voting to discontinue the bid.  PFC meeting only served to reconfirm that answers are missing, and at times provided convoluted information.  It now seems we are chasing a moving target from the International Olympic Committee.  Unfortunately, I am not confident in the process moving forward.
