“Everything is expensive, but we can be very strategic in terms of leveraging the infrastructure that we have in place,” says May. “We also want to be strategic when it comes to issues and the potential non-financial costs of sustainability and ethics. We want to ensure we represent ourselves well from every angle.”
What can’t be argued is how Calgarians are taking this decision to heart, which is part of the fabric of our community. Yes Calgary 2026 is focused on driving conversation between citizens and asking and answering the tough questions about the economics of the decision, our values and priorities.
If Calgary decides to step onto the podium for 2026, it should be with a confident leap, driven by a new kind of fuel – the confidence of a creative class and the energy of athletes, volunteers, and citizens who don’t just live here, but hold Calgary in their hearts.
Yes Calgary 2026 will be hosting an information event on Tuesday, July 17 to discuss the potential Calgary 2026 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games Bid.
