Out of all of this, West Harbour revitalization was the key. The velodrome was a nice addition, but with nothing left but a save-face stadium in the same location, I don't see the point in being involved in the PanAm games going forward.

Agreed, Synxer. I mean, really, are we even truly involved in Pan Am Gamesanymore? Aside from the games piggy-backing on the taxpayer subsidy of the operations of a (nominally) profit-making enterprise, it looks like Council's pretty much decided to sidestep the whole endeavour.

It really is a remarkable kind of leadership that pumps a city up about the transformative possibilities of infrastructure investment and then shamelessly turns the opportunity into a corporate welfare scheme.
