I agree with this:[url=http://www.torontosun.com/Sports/OtherSports/2008/05/07/5492756-sun.html]http://www.torontosun.com/Sports/OtherS ... 6-sun.html[/url]
... and feel Toronto should be totally excluded from any bid for the Pan-Am Games!
It oughta' be a Hamilton/Niagara/Peel bid exclusively; with an eye towards landing an Olympic bid for Toronto in the future!
That is, build some stadia and athletic infrastructure in the Golden Horseshoe that will serve as Pan-Am venues and can be rolled into a GTA bid for the Olympics! A well-planned, forward-thinking plan could utilize the same venues twice!
Landing a Pan-Am games for the areas around Toronto would be a coup; but if it's got Toronto attached to it, as the article says, it would be a downer!
