It took the Mayor just a matter of moments to confirm what we all thought.
Toronto will not be submitting a bit for the Summer Olympics in 2024. Speaking to scores of reporters Tory said ” Toronto “CAN” be an Olympic City but confirmed the city will not submit a bid for the 2024 Games. “I’m not saying no to the Olympics, I’m saying not this time.” Tory added.
Tory had been consulting with politicians, sporting officials and other stakeholders on what was involved in bidding for the Olympics.
He didn’t need approval to submit a letter of interest to the IOC, but would have required support from city council and provincial and federal governments to go forward with a bid.
