Toronto should not host the 2024 Summer Olympic Games--there are far more important things that the city of Toronto should be spending its money on. One of the many issues facing Toronto is the aftermath of the ice storm that hit in December 2013--let's focus on cleanup and recovery efforts instead. Another issue facing Toronto is public transit--Toronto is a large city that needs an efficient public transit system. Homelessness is another major problem in Toronto--more resources should be put into dealing with this crisis.
If Toronto gets to host the 2024 Summer Olympic Games, it will be a disaster in the long run. The few short-term benefits provided by getting international media attention for a few days will be vastly offset by the long-term consequences of the large financial costs. The city of Toronto will also pay more over time if it funds the 2024 Olympic Games, but fails to find solutions to the various issues that affect it, such as homelessness. The bid for the 2024 Olympic Games is too risky--let's not take that chance!
