Take a chance on a Great op­por­tu­nity

Calgary Herald - - LETTERS -

The fund­ing from the fed­eral gov­ern­ment is al­ready in its bud­get. It will be spent on some in­ter­na­tional sport­ing event some­where so why not use it in Cal­gary? Think of it as a re­verse fed­eral trans­fer pay­ment. Wher­ever the funds go, you as a Cana­dian tax­payer are on the hook so why not en­joy the ben­e­fits for your own city?

The games present a great re­turn on in­vest­ment — for ev­ery $1 spent by the city, more than $10 will be spent by IOC, at­ten­dees or other or­ders of gov­ern­ment — fund­ing many crit­i­cal fu­ture ex­pen­di­tures which you, the tax­payer, will oth­er­wise pay for at 100 cents on the dol­lar.

You might want to take a chance on this op­por­tu­nity.

Ray McBeth, Cal­gary
