thePodcast: From Vancouver 2010 to Paris 2024, how the Olympics fall short of social legacies

For the week of Feb. 18, 2024:

Paris hosts the Summer Olympics in July for the third time. 

Vancouver will not host the Winter Games for a second time, after the NDP government refused to back the 2030 bid. 

The 14th anniversary of the Vancouver 2010 opening passed without fanfare last week. The Games left a mixed legacy. Real estate and tourism boomed. Homelessness and addiction also skyrocketed. Clues about the true cost of the Games remain hidden until fall 2025 at the Vancouver Archives. 

Irwin Oostindie of Voor Urban Labs is this week’s guest on thePodcast. He was in the French capital earlier this month to meet with academics and critics of Paris 2024, to share his knowledge about Vancouver 2010 and its missed socio-economic goals. 

Plus, Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest headlines.
