On November 13, Calgary voters will be asked a simple question. Do you want the 2026 Winter Olympics in town? Very simple and what is more, it is a non-binding vote so the results really don’t count.
The race is on with Calgary, a joint Milan-Cortina bid and Stockholm vying for position to break the tape at the finish line and win the 2026 Winter Olympics bid.
Former National Basketball Association Commissioner David Stern once said that a successful sports franchise needed three things. Local government support, a large local TV deal and corporate support.

For anyone who has been around politics this much is known. You can hire a consultant or an economist and pretty much get the results you want because the hired help will find numbers to fit the narrative you are seeking. The Olympics is a case in point.
The International Olympic Committee suffered a defeat at the polls in Sion and Valais, Switzerland on Sunday as voters rejected a chance to help fund the 2026 Winter Olympics in that area.
The next major test for sports and whether people want to spend tax money on a sports endeavor comes on June 10 in Sion, Switzerland. That’s when local voters get a chance to say yes or no to a request by elected officials to spend money to help fund the 2026 Winter Olympics bid in the city.
