I'm a proud Canadian, but I'm even a prouder Torontonian. That's why I'm not afraid to admit I was rooting against Vancouver's bid to host the 2010 Winter Olympics. As everyone knows by now, Vancouver narrowly beat out PyeongChang to win the IOC vote.
Why was I rooting against Vancouver? Because Vancouver's victory means Toronto won't pursue the Summer Olympics in 2012. If Vancouver had lost, Toronto would have bid and won and no city on this planet deserves to host the world in 2012 more than Toronto.
Congratulations Vancouver. I hope you choke on it.
