Show Us The Numbers - Save Calgary

Petition: Show Us The Numbers!

Release-numbers-finals-1.png

Calgarians still haven't been provided with detailed financial information about hosting the 2026 Winter Olympics.

We don't know the real cost to taxpayers - we just know that it will be higher than the $5.2 billion listed in the draft hosting plan.

We don't know how much security will cost - we just know it will cost more than the $600 million stated in the draft hosting plan.

We don't know how much other levels of government will be contributing to the total cost of the Olympics - we just know the money will be coming from taxpayers.

And we don't know what the real economic benefit will be to Calgary - we just know the $7.4 billion estimated in the draft hosting plan is incredibly exaggerated.

In short, we have no way of knowing exactly how expensive these Olympics will be, and what the impact will be on Calgary if we host the 2026 Winter Olympics.

I, the undersigned, believe it is unacceptable to hold a plebiscite on whether or not to host the 2026 Winter Olympics without detailed financial information. I demand that the City of Calgary provide all Calgary voters with comprehensive, fair, and complete financial information WELL BEFORE the November 13th plebiscite on whether or not we move forward with bidding for the Olympics.

    I wish Nenshi, just for once, acted like he is spending his money instead of mine. So incredibly irresponsible.

    I want to know why the field house destination was moved. To Vic. Park instead of the previous suggested site near McMahon and university where it was favours. Also, can think of absolutely no winter sport that requires a field house nor has this been disclosed. Have heard rumblings about putting ice in it too?? Really? This idea and the small arena?? 5000seat or something was and has never been a NEED by this city or previously dreamed a necessity ever. Could this field house and small arena be part of the Flames plan to get both – which I and many believe to be the case. Small arena would be their “practise facility” in the opinion of many – then the nhl arena to come along side it as one of those expenses “related to a successful bid”. Disgusting! How can we get truthful answers to any of this? The Flmaes are knee deep in this business and we are being taken for fools in more ways than one. A Field House for Winter Olympics?. Give us a break!
