This morning on CBC Radio’s Eyeopener, the Unconventional Panel reconvened for a special summer edition featuring myself, The Globe and Mail’s Shelley Youngblut and Calgary business leader George Brookman.
The topic up for debate today was the Olympics, more specifically, how much money is spent on the games and are they even worth it. It was a lively debate because I think we all came at it from different angles and there are certainly different opinions based on our previous Olympic memories.
Of note, Only a few hours after we did the radio segment, CBC announced that they had won the rights to air the 2014 and 2015 Olympics for an undisclosed amount. Although knowing today’s media, it won’t be undisclosed for long.
