Olympic bid?

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

Toronto’s mayor says the city now has sports fa­cil­i­ties to host in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tions that could pre­vi­ously only be held in Van­cou­ver, leav­ing the door open for a pos­si­ble fu­ture Olympic bid. The city is cur­rently host­ing the Pan Am Games, which wrap up Sun­day, and Mayor John Tory said Wed­nes­day the event has put Toronto on the global map for ath­letic events. “There’s a whole va­ri­ety of in­ter­na­tional events and sport­ing com­pe­ti­tions that we’re now in a po­si­tion to host, which I think is good for Toronto, good for On­tario and good for Canada, and the Olympics is one of those, ob­vi­ously, about which there’s a great dis­cus­sion,” Tory said.
