The Pan Am Games

    6 November 2009, lunch time

We won the bid to host the Pan Am games in 2015. Bizarre. I always think of Toronto as the city that almost wins at these sorts of contests. Maybe it was a good thing Harper didn’t show up. Now lets sit and wait for all the crazy infrastructure spending that is going to happen. I want to take the Sheppard subway to Scarborough. Or take a Kingston subway from Union. Make it happen people!

  1. No way are we losing to Bogota! Fuck that!

  2. Historically, cities who host large events like that go into a bigger debt than it’s worth.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

 
Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
