Hydro Olympic suite angers the NDP

Hydro Olympic suite angers the NDP.

The NDP wants to know why BC Hydro spent $264,000 on a luxury suite at GM Place for the 2010 Games.

We're funding the Olympics by getting other crown corporations to buy tickets and luxury suites for the Olympics so that we come out of the Olympics without a deficit that was directly caused by the Olympics.

Oh, the joy of it it all. I knew from day one that the Olympics would cause financial hardship for British Columbians for years to come – But nobody (at first) believed me. Well, now we get to see the direct result of the Olympics and everyone has to suffer.

Please, tell me again why all of British Columbia did not get a referendum on the Olympics when we are picking up the tab for it?
