Question of the day: Has there been too much complaining about the Pan Am Games?

Emily PrattRebel Correspondent

Toronto Mayor John Tory is calling out all Pan Am Games complainers.

Tory pokes fun at pessimistic Torontonians saying the city would be in the running for a gold medal if moaning and groaning were a sport. So I hit the streets to see if you think there's been too much complaining going on about the Games.

Events like the Pan Scam games are a rent seekers paradise.
Lots of borrowed money thrown around. Lots of waste.
And in the end Taxpayers are on the hook to pay it back.

NO! Just wait until these way way over costs games come in. Will John Tory have the balls to investigate will our provincial over tax and spend government investigate I THINK (KNOW) NOT. These over cost and economically intrusive games will prove to be a disaster, how mush money and taxes will be lost due to the traffic jams. Toronto is a large city why do we waist our money on a second rate Olympic style games it should have cost us less than $500,000.00 to put these games on. The other billion dollars should have been spent on highways. both this liberal government and the liberal mayor are against the car, the cat that is the life blood of this city. It is our duty to complain about these games just remember it was just last year that we finally paid the 1976 Montreal Olympics.

Well, as I never go to Hog Town and I have no intention of following the Pan American games, folks can whine all they want – it is cash in the bank for the city
