  1. Toronto?

    6 hours is the distance, but if there is no other bids.... what do you do?
  2. Toronto?

    Bit of a scoop... there is preliminary behind the scenes work being done on a bid for the 2026 Winter Olympics (yes you read that correct) from Toronto. Of course Lake Placid would be needed for the alpine venue (and sliding track most likely). However with there being an apathy towards bidding this may work...
  3. Toronto?

    There goes the Portlands... http://www.cp24.com/news/google-s-sister-company-to-build-high-tech-community-on-toronto-waterfront-1.3636506
  4. Ceremonies on UTube, Part 3

    2017 Invictus Games
  5. The 2017 Invictus Games begin in Toronto tomorrow. The opening ceremony will be shown live on various channels.
  6. Ceremonies on UTube, Part 3

    The ceremony was outdoors.
  7. USA 2027

    Its a good idea in theory, but I do not think the USOC will be interested with a Winter bid also looming. Maybe shortly after both have been hosted (so 2031 or 2035)?
  8. 2030 Commonwealth Games

    Toronto is preparing a bid for 2030 in its preliminary stages but knowing this city's council it will be shot down
  9. 2030 Commonwealth Games

    Hopefully not. There are better Canadian cities to choose from.
  10. Calgary 2026

    Realistically Calgary will get either 2026/2030 if there is no bid from the USA.
  11. Breaking:Victoria is out, after the province refused to support the bid. That means the 2022 Commonwealth Games are headed to England!
  12. Where does the IOC go from here?

    I was thinking the same thing, but RIP a summer games in my lifetime in Toronto
  13. Sorry my bad, it appears Donsview was the preferred sight for the village: http://www.torontosun.com/2015/11/08/olympic-bid-raised-red-flags-at-queens-park but its not very clear
  14. Exactly my thoughts. But there is development pressure on the Portlands, for ex. the athlete's village for Pan Am was supposed to be the space for the media village in the 2008 bid. Donsview is getting a new subway connection so the whole area is under going change atm and is about 25 minutes by train to the downtown core.
