Interesting article by Chris Selley from The National Post on Pan Am games hidden costs.

A choice section of the article:

Mayor Rob Ford and Deputy Mayor Doug Holyday blame David Miller and his cronies for $23-million in unanticipated soil remediation necessary to build a $200-million aquatics centre on the University of Toronto's Scarborough campus. "They knew there were problems with the site, but they didn't come forward and tell us," Mr. Holyday contended on Monday, after the Executive Committee reluctantly (rolls eyes) approved the new expenditures. "So we, as council, voted on the matter without having all the information and not knowing the total costs."

A couple of things look awfully familiar to me, what do you think?
