You touched on something I did not, WRCU2, and that is the Commonwealth Games legacy. That is the reason it exists in the first place. Funding it's revitalization with funds from a 21st century games, would add more to the history and that legacy you speak of, being a venue used on a 'Games' stage since 1930.

"The Civic Stadium was first opened in 1930. The stadium was originally built to host the British Empire Games which was Canada's first major international athletic event held in August of 1930." ~ from the History of Ivor WYnne at Ticats.ca

Canada's first international athletic event. So it's history is Canada wide? Can a national heritage council step in here? Just wondering.
