Council Clips - November 6, 2018
2026 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games Bid Support
Council voted 6 to 1, with Councillor McCallum in opposition, to support Calgary’s potential bid on the 2026 Olympic and Paralympic Games and agree to provide the required IOC Guarantees on the condition that satisfactory terms are reached with other orders of government for funding support sufficient to cover the operational costs of Games delivery in the Town of Canmore. Council expressed their support for the Games citing the legacy opportunities for Canmore to gain 242 units of Perpetually Affordable Housing, additional flood mitigation, and as a result of hosting the Paralympics, improve our accessibility.
