Re: COC announces $100 million in corporate support
Didn't say the corporate funding could or should be redirected. Those businesses are contributing because it has a positive ROI through advertising. More power to them.
My point is that our government should not be spending 50 million (as posted by isitdoneyet) on what is essentially welfare for those who have less need for it than others.
The kid who wants to play hockey but can't because registration is $400/season + equipment + travel + time doesn't benefit from someone coming in bronze. On top of that obesity rates continue to climb and sports participation continues to decline. Solving those two issues is, IMO, more important than whether or not a Canadian stands on a podium in some game.
