2010 Olympic grants

If you thought the 2010 Olympic estimated cost overruns for construction were bad; get a load of some of the grant requests.

Part of the funding for the 2010 Olympic games is ear-marked for organizations wishing to "host" viewing sites for individuals to watch the olympic games.

Point Ellice House - a historical home and tourist desitnation in Victoria BC - which is under the auspices of the Capital Mental Health Association has applied for $100,000 olympic grant. The folks at Point Ellice House are hoping to build a $200,000 facility with the money.

Gee, the grant wouldn't have anything to do with recent operational difficulties would it?

Here's an idea. Why not privatize the tourist desitnation and charge the going rate?
