Trailbreaker debate: Should Yellowknife host the 2023 Canada Winter Games?
City council to vote Monday on potential bid
Yellowknife city council will make its final decision Monday on whether or not to bid to host the 2023 Canada Winter Games in Yellowknife — but before the official vote happens, The Trailbreaker is giving the 'yes' and 'no' sides a chance to debate the issue head to head.
- Canada Winter Games in Yellowknife would cost $50M, says committee
- 2 out of 3 people say 'no' to Yellowknife Canada Winter Games bid
Host Loren McGinnis welcomed Mike Bradshaw, executive director of the N.W.T. Chamber of Commerce, and Ryan Fequet, vice-president of Sport North, who debated the merits and drawbacks of the 2023 Games live on CBC Radio One.
After the radio debate, the discussion moved online, in a live chat.
