CEO wins taxpayer-funded bonus if Calgary votes to host Olympics

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

On this week's episode of The Gunn Show, William MacBeath of Save Calgary joined me to discuss Calgary's plebiscite on whether the city will host the 2026 Winter Olympics.

The municipal government has stated that taxpayers money will not be used to fund the pro-Olympic campaign, but the CEO of Calgary's Olympic bid stands to win a taxpayer-funded bonus if the bid is approved.

And if this proposal goes forward, make sure to check “the fine print”… Specifically where they budget to also raise a statue to “Stout Menshi”…

I love the Olympics but question the impact on the community.

We the taxpayers don’t want the Olympics. It’s a way for Nenshi and friends to siphon off more taxpayer dollars.

No Olympics!!! It is just wasting huge amounts of money to inflate egos. If Canadians want to be proud of themselves again, then dump Trudeau and his CBC. Build the pipelines for oil self-sufficiency. Stop worshiping foreigners.

I will gladly contribute to the no side on this issue because eventually this will end up costing all of us money.
Typical for a bunch of elites to gather around a premise like an Olympic Bid and then vote themselves bonuses and big expense accounts .

The Olympics loses incredible just incredible amounts of money to provide a very small handful of people huge profits which they never earned nor do they deserve… Tell the Olympics to find another nipple to suck on.!!

Shove the Olympics. We have not paid off the 1988 bill yet.
