    Extremely doubtful. They don't have the facilities.
    Seriously tho, at this point do we? May be cheaper to just do it all brand new in Edmonton than retrofit Calgary's.

    EDIT: I guess we need skill hills in the mountains but that isn't a Calgary problem anyway.

    If she seriously attempts a bid, we really need to shoot it down based on how much of a "climate impact" it may have on our city.

    They're certainly big, but I don't know if they are the BEST I've tasted.

    According to the UCP it's Calgary that's going to be the city.

    Calgary is much closer to K-Country/Canmore than Edmonton.

    Is this some trick to cover up the failures of the Event Centre debacle?

    Scuttlebutt is that the IOC is willing to put in way more money since literally no one wants to host these anymore.

    It was a 56.4% vote for no last time, what's going to change that this time? City has too much money to waste on shit like this but they can't send the garbage back for missing my green bin day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Technically we might not even have winter by the time this olympics would happen because of the climate emergency she declared

    I was firmly against it last time, but if the IOC is truly desperate and willing to throw money at us and the feds are sending some tax dollars our way... I could be convinced.

    On the other hand, dunking on Jyoti is also entertaining.

    Imagine an opportunity to only lose hundreds of millions of dollars, instead of billions!

    If we send in Gondek to do the negotiations, it could be the first time the IOC ever pulls out of a bribe bid.

    When has that stopped any Olympics from happening lol .

    I think the biggest hurdle for Edmonton to win the bid would be the distance to the mountains.

    Either way, if it's in Calgary I'll AirBnB my house for some stupid expense to rich tourists and live in my mom's basement like a scrub

    What is kErT~esque about that?
    Do you believe hosting Olympics is a profitable venture? Or do you believe Kert is a vehement opponent of hosting Olympics?

    Kert would somehow make the argument hosting the olympics is “profitable” yes

    We can't host the Olympics. We're landlocked.
