Mayor Nenshi speaks with journalists about Olympics bid exploration

Post Date: Tuesday, February 20, 2018

During a break in a meeting of Council, Mayor Nenshi met with journalists to talk about the bid exploration process for a 2026 Winter Olympics. This was his first opportunity to speak with local media following his participation in the PyeongChang Winter Olympics Observer Program.
"We're going through this process because we want to make sure we are doing what's right for Calgary... If we move forward on this, we move forward on a bid that is honest, that is ethical, that is transparent, that is cost effective, that is quintessentially Canadian. And if that's not what people are looking for, then we won't win."
