Toronto mayor 'nowhere near' deciding on 2024 Olympics bid
Tory says decision likely weeks away
With just over a month left to enter the race to host the 2024 Summer Olympics, Toronto's mayor says he is "nowhere near" deciding whether the city will throw its hat in the ring.
John Tory's meeting with the head of the Canadian Olympic Committee earlier this week stirred talk that he was preparing to officially announce a pitch, though his office stressed the event was simply to gather information about the bidding process.
The mayor has said he wouldn't rule on the possibility of a third bid until after the Parapan Am Games, which wrap up Saturday.
He said Thursday that a decision is likely weeks away.
Tory says he needs to know how the Pan Am and Parapan Am Games affected the city, and that information won't be available until early next month.
Cities looking to host the 2024 Games have until Sept. 15 to register their interest with the International Olympic Committee.
