    And now some of the fallout from the failed bid: Global News: Calgary luge, bobsleigh upgrade projects shelved due to funding issues: WinSport

    Edmonton is out to lunch. For me it was a Yes for Calgary (because we have the venues), but a No for Edmonton.

    Whaa, it ends tomorrow. Calgary Herald: Olympic bid expected to officially be put to rest Monday I'd still like to see Calgary make another attempt at it in the future, it's just too many things are out of whack right now. The city is broke enough that they can't even afford new C-train cars. We need our two pipelines built. Locally we need the Greenline built with extension to the airport, Victoria Park build-out with new events centre, field house, and then maybe attempt another bid.

    At least in 2026 my kitchen cupboards won't be overflowing with Petro Canada drinking glasses.

    Results of the plebiscite should be available on this site around 10pm: http://vote2018.calgary.ca/
  8. I voted last week already. I voted yes. Results should be revealed at around 10pm (MST) tonight. I just wonder how many people are gonna screw-up the ballots though. This is the first time they are using electronic tabulating machines, so instead of just Xing your choice like on old ballots, you have to completely fill in the bubble so the machine reads it - like bubble sheets for university exams. People around here are dumb enough to screw it up.

    CBC News: First look at Olympic hub around McMahon Stadium revealed ^Just for orientation, this is facing south. That's Crowchild trail on the left with the pedestrian bridge to the C-Train along Banff Trail. Looks like they're planning to turn McMahon Stadium's east parking lot into a celebration site. But I'm curious, I wonder if they are still planning to use the Stampede Grandstand for medal ceremonies? They could probably have them outside of McMahon.

    Went to the Yes 2026 rally today. listened to speeches by various athletes including Michael "Eddie the Eagle" Edwards and the world's fastest man in 1996, Donovan Bailey. Big speech by the mayor too. Picked up some swag; got a t-shirt and some buttons. You'll see on twitter as someone pointed out, about a quarter of the seats were empty - just bad timing. Tomorrow the advance polls begin. We'll see what happens next week.
