CALGARY — An International Olympic Committee executive told Calgary business leaders the risk to the city of hosting the 2026 Winter Games is low.
Christophe Dubi answered questions at a chamber of commerce event about costs and what the IOC expects from a host city.
Calgary hosted the 1988 Winter Games. The city has yet to commit to bid for 2026.
A firm price tag for hosting the games has yet to be announced. Dubi asked Calgarians to be patient as those numbers are analyzed.
A plebiscite on the issue will be held later this year.
Groups for and against a bid are forming. A spokesperson for the ‘No’ side says Olympic Games are the riskiest project any city can take on.
