2010 Vancouver Olympics

January 22, 2009 10:55 pm

I’m really skeptical about the benefits of having the Winter Olympics in Vancouver for 2010.    Canada have had already had two Olympics in the past (Calgary & Montreal).   What legacy will it leave the citizens of Vancouver when it leaves them millions of dollars in debt?

Vancouver Sun reports that the total spending of the olympics is going to be in the $6 billion range.  What can that do for the people of BC?

1.  Health Care

2.  Education

3.  Roads, Bridges & Infrastructures Projects that will actually help the economy of BC.

4.  Social Programs

What do you think about the 2010 Olympics?
