Since when the homeless have money to be taken away. Isn't that why they are homeless they have no money and why are they begging for money on the street if they have money then.
What year's olympics was 'Javelin' written for?
No, because I remember how it helped Calgary back in 1988. The Olympics, though may drain things prior, will lift Vancouver tourism both during the games and in the future which...in the long run, will likely return any government money spent.
Also, think of the jobs that the construction has created...again, yes, pulling money out of the government coffers, but putting it into people's pockets that wouldn't have had that money without the work.
It is not cheap to host the games, although when you consider the facilities Vancouver already has in place, its likely cheaper than it would have been in some places.
