Ward 11 News: Olympic Plebiscite Greenlighted

  • Share

On Monday, April 23rd, City Council voted in favour of proceeding with a plebiscite in principle as the bid exploration for the 2026 Olympic Games proceeds. I am pleased that the public will finally have a say on whether or not Calgary should be proceeding with an Olympic bid.
The plebiscite, which is non-binding, is mandatory in order to get Provincial funding for an Olympic bid.
City Council also created a Council Olympic committee comprised of some members of Council and the Mayor. This Committee will be responsible for offering recommendations to City Council with respect to the engagement, public vote and Olympic bid moving forward.
