Windsor Mayor Eddie Francis is considering a bid for the 2014 Ontario Summer Games.

The Niagara region already won the bid, but now says it's not ready to host the event.

Francis is working on a report on Windsor hosting.

City council will see the research at next week's meeting.

The games would bring approximately 3,200 young athletes, coaches and officials to the region next August.

CBC News has learned that Niagara withdrew its bid during the summer, after the bid committee couldn't meet some requirements.
