    Toronto's dream of having a revitalized lakefront bites the dust yet again.

    Yes Winter Olympics. A place that doesn't even get winter is going to host the Winter Olympics. And we in Toronto are stuck paying the bill for a stupid failed bid for the 2008 Olympics because of our stupid, stupid city council.

    Sigh

    Yeah, I knew it at first that Vancouver was gonna win the bid.

    2006 Olympics will be held in Europe, so less chance Salzburg was gonna get it.
    2008 Olympics will be held in Asia, so less chance PyeongChang was gonna get it.
    And there's one more reason why I think one of those two countries didn't win the bid. But I prefer not to write here.

    Now that 2010 will be held in North America, there's less chance New York is gonna win the 2012 Olympics bid.

    All the best to Vancouver-Whistler.
    Now..... the transportation problem.......
