“I know that the city, the citizens have a decision to make but our government will be a full partner with whatever they decide,” said Calgary Centre Liberal MP Kent Hehr. While he’s not in a position to confirm the funding total, he told 660 NEWS the announcement will give Calgarians what they need to decide how to vote in next month’s Olympic plebiscite.

“Well our government is committed to Calgary we know they have a big decision to make and I know that we are full partners with them in whatever that decision is,” said Hehr. “There are many other partners involved and we want to see [it happen], should the citizens want a world-class games to take part in this great city.”
