With the Pan Am Games set to wrap this weekend there is much chatter in the city about the possibility of hosting the 2024 Olympics. The deadline to bid is fast approaching, the Applicant City Phase will start on September 15th and continue through to April/May 2016. The Candidate City Phase will continue through to the election of the host city in the summer of 2017.
Toronto has bid 5 times in the past with the closest chance in 2008 when we came second to Beijing. We would definitely have a good shot having proved we could handle it based on the Pan Am Games. The question is will the people of Toronto and the GTA get behind it?
