The Calgary Herald Olympic Committee

Dear Sir:

In Calgary you have families that cannot even afford to feed their children breakfast nor pack them a lunch or give them money for a cafeteria lunch before sending them off to school. This is the same all over Alberta, yet Mayor Naheed Nenshi wants to give billions to athletes & the corrupt IOC to subsidize not just their costs, but to give them salaries & expenses for the proposed second Calgary Winter Olympics. It seems very unethical to me that children who have severe cognition difficulties are having mental health issues just trying to learn in school while
athletes, administrators, as well as the pro Calgary Olympic Committee want to force this terrible event on the already middle & poorer classes of Calgarians.

Having a second Olympics will do nothing but raise their taxes even more as well as lower their overall living standard to an even greater degree! Clearly there is something wrong with this picture!
