B.K. O’Brien, a professor of economics at the University of British Columbia, said the province will have to find another way to absorb the cost of hosting the B.c.
Games is going to be $1.6 billion.
The cost of that is going be borne by the taxpayers, who will be paying that cost in the form of higher electricity rates, increased bills for other consumers, and it’s a burden on them and on future generations.”
The provincial government is spending $1 billion on a hosting contract for the games, and the BCTF says it is in the process of renegotiating it.
But O’Brian said the price tag is far more than most other major events.
“We’re talking about the cost per person of a typical day.
The total cost per day of a normal family, a normal corporate employee, is probably closer to $1,200.
So, for a very small number of people, they’re going to have to pay that price in the same way that they’re paying for a ticket to the Olympic Games,” O’Brien said.
“And that is, in my view, a terrible burden to bear.
It’s a huge price for the taxpayers of the province.”
