Re: Demise of an Olympic Stadium

A worse solution is to follow what Western society is doing lately ie Greece and Japan did with their stadiums - the Greek and Japanese fiascos opted for socialist style 'Protectioism' after the 2002 WorldCup and 2004 Summer Olympics. The Western example for stadiums have opted to become money holes, Tokyo and Athens becoming more socialist than the reds. Tokyo and Athens draining away tax payer money, some stadiums have become big government white elephants looking derelict and dilapidated and nothing like their world cup show pieces.
Yeah, Montreal's Olympic Stadium is known as The Big Owe for a reason...
