I just can’t wait…

for the publication of the pricetag for Halifax’s bid for the 2014 Commonwealth Games. I can’t wait, because I would like to see how much of my tax dollars is going into swan research trips. The policy of the HRM council’s bid committee is to not reveal any costs because it would somehow give away too much information to it’s competition or somesuch.

Yeah, right.

The real reason is that the council still hasn’t figured out the right way to approach the taxpayers with the outrageous pricetag that’s coming down the pipe, and seeing that the steady dribble of cash is already started is only going to get people (like me) yapping. No, it’s not going to hurt the competitiveness of the bid, it’s just going to rub it in the faces of those of us that are now paying with annual property re-assessments and increased costs and fees.
