boarderboy Posted February 25, 2010 Report Share Posted February 25, 2010 I really love the Winter Olympics. I'd love to live in Vancouver, too. (But the Canucks are too smart to let an old fart immigrate.) But these games are gonna cost the city, (maybe the country, too?) a mint in the long run. Here are the grim details http://www.nytimes.com/2010/02/25/sports/olympics/25vancouver.html?hp note the following, "Well before the Games began, the global recession pushed several of the Games’s sponsors, including Nortel Networks and General Motors, into bankruptcy. Whistler Blackcomb, the resort that is hosting the Alpine skiing events, will soon be sold at auction. Security costs, first estimated at $165 million, are now headed toward $1 billion." And concealing a glorious cauldron behind a chain link fence? There has to be a better way! BB Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
