Could Buffalo host an Olympics? News10NBC's affiliate in Buffalo, WGRZ, is reporting that a member of the Toronto City Council said Toronto should team up with a U.S. city like Buffalo to host the 2024 Olympics.
Toronto already has two previous failed bids for the Olympics, so Councilor James Pasternak wanted to try out the joint-bid idea, according to a weekend report in the Toronto Sun.
"If you could have a Great Lakes Olympics where you are having cities on the Great Lakes that are partnering for events - that not only makes sense geographically, from a logistical point of view, but financially as well," Pasternak told the Sun, adding "Geographically Buffalo and Toronto are pretty close."
Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown described the idea as "intriguing", adding that he would love to discuss the matter further with leaders in Toronto.
