It seems as though there’s a case of Olympic fever at city council, since Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong introduced a motion today that asked city staffers to outline the pros and cons of Toronto hosting the 2024 Summer Olympic Games. This motion, which council voted in favour of, came as an amendment to Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam’s motion to study the possibility of hosting World Expo 2025 in Toronto. The winning city will be determined in 2017, which leaves time to mock up some sample renderings of what our mascots will look like. (We’re just hoping it isn’t anything like Atlanta’s Izzy.)
