Wetaskiwin writer supports Calgary Olympic bid

If money has to be spent, why not on Olympics?

Dear editor,

So Calgary has been bidding for the ’22 Winter Olympics. Many people are grouching and complaining, as we have the right. Well, at least it’s free!

I myself think that it would be really cool, bringing back fond memories of the 1988 Olympics. I think my wife Rosie was more thrilled than me as she watched the opening ceremonies on TV from high River.

Speaking of “thrilled” you can tell that our premier sure isn’t. In fact, she doesn’t like the idea of parting with $700 million of her hard earned money (Ha! Sarcasm!).

Calgary actually requested another $300 million, but oh no! Notley and her honchos told Calgary all you receive is $700 million, take it or leave!

Actually, I’ve heard rumors that Notley had planned to give that $700+ million to the NDP slush fund, could be true, cause we all know how wasteful this party is!

Go Calgary go!
