  1. However, we all know there will be extremely positive things coming out of Aubut's mouth now since he wants this to happen.
  2. Marcel Aubut was apart of creating Agenda 2020? Didn't know that! Well atleast we know that if we do bid, that a Winter Olympic bid won't go on at the same time like Vancouver. Great news Yes supposedly! Speaking with CP24 on Tuesday afternoon, Canadian Olympic President Marcel Aubut said he is nonetheless confident that the city can follow the path of Rio de Janeiro and use a strong Pan American Games as a launching pad for a successful Olympic bid. The final cost of the Pan Am Games have yet to be released, however Aubut predicted that they will be a success financially. “I just a
  3. Also I wanted to note that the website domain toronto-2024.com has been registered. It's obviously not live yet.
  4. The private sector financing of the bid is a critical factor. From what I hear Tory is working hard to secure that. This will delay the council vote as they will have the bid already financed and the Bid committee up and running.
  5. I was watching the news and it was said that it's imminent that John Tory will sign off on a 2024 Olympic bid after the meeting he had yesterday.
  6. Berlin would have been a stronger contender. Regardless, at the end of the day, Paris is the cream of the crop out of the European cities.
  7. Toronto will bid. Just waiting for formal applications http://sports.yahoo.com/news/toronto-bid-2024-olympics-joins-5-others-121438442--spt.html

  10. Public support is rising. Newstalk 1010 interviewed Torontonians and majority are in favour. The video is on the website. WATCH: Pan Am Games chair wants to see the city bid on 2024 Olympics David Peterson says Toronto is ready Posted on 7/23/2015 by Hayley Cooper, Russ Courtney Should the City of Toronto bid on the 2014 Olympics? The chair of the Pan Am Games says "Yes!" David Peterson says things could not have gone any better with the games over the past two weeks, thanks to the collective effort of tens of thousands of people. "There's a lot of pressure. People who weren't to
  11. GBModerator, do you agree with me that a decision has already been made? Do you also have some inside on this that you'd be willing to share?
  12. Let's not beat around the bush here. The city already has made its decision, it just won't be formally announced until the ParaPan Am games are complete. The games are a big success and public support at its most positive state which means the Olympic bid will be getting the green light. COC support - check, Mayor support - check, Ontario Premier support- check, Prime Minister support - To be determined but most likely a CHECK since this is an election year and Toronto, and Ontario will be the battle ground for the Conservatives if they want to win election.
