I say COC should do what they did for 2008/2010 only in reverse.

Give Quebec it's 2022 bid because they claimed it first, under the provision that all bid funding is by Quebec only (Federal funding will be if Quebec wins), then if Quebec loses, have Toronto bid for 2024, which likewise they will fund their bid themselves.

consider a long wait before ever bidding again

Disaster???? - there were some problems (most out of the organiser's control), but overalll, the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games were outstanding. STOP perpetuating the myths put forward by stupid elements in the world's media who like to blow everything out of proportion and make mountains out of molehills.
Please tell me of an Olympic Games that did not encounter at least some problems.

Australian Olympic Committee Opts Out Of Olympic 2024 Bid
Sunday, January 18, 2009 12:44pm EST GB Staff
Font size:

There are reports that Australian Olympic Committee head John Coates has ruled out Melbourne or Brisbane bidding for the 2024 Summer Olympic Games. Coates confirmed he had spoken to Sir Rod Eddington and Queensland Premier Anna Bligh about interest held by both cities in hosting the Games, but said 2024 was not an option.
He told SEN Radio Sunday, "a bid can't go forward unless the Australian Olympic Committee agrees. I don't think we would agree to 2024. I just don't think that that's realistic. We'd be wasting government's money".

Coates said Olympic bids cost about $75 million to run and billions more to stage, and any Australian state or territory with that kind of money should instead invest in preparing athletes for upcoming Olympics.

He added, "this is not a matter that is a priority for the Olympic committee. It is not a matter that, other than me reporting on my conversations with the Queensland Government and with Rod Eddington, is going any further that that with us".

It appears according to Coates that Brisbane would be more likely to be the next Australian city to bid for a Games because historically when countries bid, a city that has not hosted the Games before is favoured. But if Brisbane did not proceed with a bid, Melbourne would be the most likely contender, Coates said.

He added the next time the country bids for an Olympic Games is likely to be in the latter half of the 2020s, 2030s or beyond.

Meanwhile the Daily reports Queensland is focused on securing a Commonwealth Games ahead of an Olympic Games, according to Treasurer Andrew Fraser. He told reporters Sunday, "I think many people regard the (1982) Commonwealth Games that were in Brisbane as a seminal moment in the development of the city. As a government we've said we're interested in looking at a Commonwealth Games bid for the Gold Coast, that's our focus for the moment,. He added that Brisbane would host a better Olympic Games than Melbourne - "without a doubt".

See Matthew, Brisbane is not gonna apply so stop flogging it KTHXBI!!!

There are soooo many countries on our planet, which have never hosted OG before, why should IOC award 2 SOG within 24 years to a country "down under" ?

Do you view a 2024 summer Olympics in Toronto, 48 years after Montréal, as too soon for Canada? I know some people view hosting winter Olympics as negating that possibility, but the IOC doesn't seem to. What do people think though? I'd love the summer Olympics to come back to Canada, but also recognize the need to share the games with countries that have never had it.

2024, is probably Toronto's last best chance to land the summer Olympics. The number of feasible candidate cities is growing by leaps and bounds. I suppose Toronto has the fact that we're in America going for it. If Toronto were in Asia, it would be much harder.

Do you think Toronto would be ready in 14 years though? The city is still very much a work in progress. Yonge Street is an embarrassing mess, the subway is vastly under built, and we're still using early 20th century technology like overhead telephone wires.

If Toronto continues to transform over the next 14 years as it has like the past 5 years, perhaps the city would be ready. I'd love for the summer Olympics to go to Toronto, but I'm not convinced that the city would be where it needs to be by 2024. What do you think?

Canada would be a perfect host for any games - summer & winter.
As a member of IOC, I would prefer to share the olympics with many countries! For this reason they awarded the games to Rio and not to Chicago /USA, a country, which hosted eight olympic games in history!

Years ago just a few countries and cities were able to host the games, today many countries and cities would be great hosts for the olympic games.

May be Toronto will be Canada's next host for SOG, but they have to wait another 20-30 years!

If 2018 should be in Korea, Munich will apply a second time for sure.

Maybe the Chinese that time will do so, too (this time, if Korea doesn't get the 2018 games).
