At the @Calgary2026 public bid presentation, listening to @maryhmoran discuss how a responsible bid is an opportunity to align all levels of government in an investment in Canada and Calgary’s future - not an easy thing to do these days #truestory
Excellent breakdown of the proposed @Calgary2026 budget: $3.0B total investment from all govts: $1.6B for new & renewed venues + villages; $910M for essential services & security; $310M for Paralympics; $180M for legacy sport & cultural programming; $120M for contingency/overrun
Opportunity to attract $3.7B from private and federal government sources if Calgary decides to host the Olympic Games. $3.7B! That money will go to other international or domestic projects if Calgary decides to not bid.
Calgary has the lowest percentage of inclusive housing in the country. A bid will result in new social housing projects, more jobs starting as soon as 2019, increased tourism, growth in GDP. This community has faced challenging times the past 5 years - it’s time to build it back!
