Province mandates plebiscite on Calgary Olympic bid

The Alberta Government has made its contribution to Calgary’s 2026 Olympic bid conditional on a plebiscite.

The Olympic ideal is commendable, but the Olympic sized cost is not.

The guesstimated cost of the proposed Calgary Olympics per Calgary taxpayer is about $16,000; per Alberta taxpayer about $3,000.

Given that the governments of Calgary and Alberta have already maxed out their credit cards, hosting the Olympic Games is financial lunacy.

In the plebiscite, vote NO.

Olympic referendum
The public has the final say.

Citizens of Calgary should MAKE THE DECISION about committing tax dollars to the Flames arena and the Olympics – not just 15 Councillors.

A referendum is the way for Citizens to decide extraordinary matters of this kind.Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
