Will Calgary taxpayers get saddled with hosting unaffordable Olympics? (Guest: William McBeath, Save Calgary)

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show


The Calgary Olympic bid has been a dishonest mess from the very beginning.

It’s become a Frankenstein monster, roughly sewn together in order to realize Mayor Naheed Nenshi’s dreams of a global scale legacy party for himself, paid for by the taxpayers of Canada.

News of leaked conversations, secret meetings, behind the scenes deals, and duelling taxpayer federation associations cross-endorsing each other's cities, have solidified opposition to the bid and turned patriotic fans of the olympics into cynics.

Over the course of 24 hours, the bid has been dead, resurrected, and then maybe dead again. It’s changing by the minute and costing money every step of the way.

Join me tonight as I speak with William McBeath from Save Calgary, in an interview that we recorded Tuesday morning, way back when the Olympic bid was still dead in its grave.

Watch as William explains how Calgary taxpayers got so far into this mess in the first place, and what we can do next to stop the bleeding at Calgary city hall.

Time to drain the Calgary swamp, eh? In camera meetings should ONLY be for discussions about private matters about personal salaries and other sensative matters. Policy should NEVER be considered an in camera meeting reason.

Who decided that at least 10 had to vote against this bid? The actual vote was 8 to 7 which clearly indicates a win in allowing this farce to end. Whoever determined that 10 was the magic number, already knew who would vote for and against it. What a complete sham!

This thing is going down like the Hindenburg and Nenshi can wear it for the rest of his life. You wanted a legacy, Barney? Well, congratulations, you’re going to have one.

I wonder what has to happen to get the IOC to change the way they do things. Best if this bid dies now.

Our criminal politicians and the corrupt IOC will find anyway possible to de fraud and manipulate Canadians into hosting what they have clearly rejected …..another example of forced globalism with regular Canadians footing the bill for the wishes of corrupt elites
