This is a list of expenditures I took from a Michael Smyth (column)that the BC Liberals don’t include in their Olympic costs. Love that even one that is purely a government function even with an Olympic name is still inexplicably excluded.
BC Olympic Games Secretariat: $40.7 million
Insurance Corp of BC: $15 million sponsorship
BC Hydro: $22 million sponsorship
BC Lotteries: $15 million sponsorship
Government only MLA tickets: $900,000
Olympic torch relay events: $3.5 million
Olympic School Spirit Program: $500,000
I haven’t added to this list any infrastructure costs such as the rushed Sea to Sky Hwy or Canada Line projects.
