Mississauga city council has decided not to move forward with any involvement regarding a 2024 Summer Olympic bid by Toronto.
Council there voted unanimously against supporting a bid at a meeting on Wednesday.
They decided that the impacts on the city and to residents outweighed the benefits of hosting the Games.
Mayor Bonnie Crombie says “Without a comprehensive business case which details the budget implications and financial requests Mississauga taxpayers would be asked to commit, Council could not proceed with supporting a Toronto bid to host the 2024 Summer Olympics in such a short timeframe.”
The City of Toronto decide by September 15 whether to send a letter of intent to the International Olympic Committee, stating they wish to make a bid.
