    Originally the Olympics weren't made for making a huge profit but to promote piece, togetherness, etc...

    I think the first really "made for profit" Olympics was the one in LA.....

    for sure to date it has been the last one, it was run by romney and that's a very good reason he should be next president of the US. the US needs a businessman at the helm and not a community organizer.


    as to the OP and kassz0007 you both have have to come up with additional statistics to prove your case.

    a 1billion bungle(?) in itself doesn't detract from Canada's reputation in handling the world economic crisis.


    on subject of stadiums

  4. I have no case to prove. I haven't really read much of anything regarding the economic impact the Vancouver Olympics had on the local economy or British Columbia taxpayers.

    All I know is that the OP and the article he references is claiming the olympics in Vancouver was a disaster because the olympic village condos have not sold out. This one fact does not in itself constitute a disaster.

    it definitely has not tarnished Canada's reputation.
