A new poll suggests that Canadians see substantial benefits from the 2010 Olympic Games for Canada, for B.C. and for the city of Vancouver.
But British Columbians and Vancouverites were less likely to see great benefits from the Games, according to the Environics poll conducted after the conclusion of the Games.
Environics conducted three polls for CBC News — one before the Games began, the second midway through the Games and the most recent poll in the week after the closing ceremonies.
The new poll showed that 86 per cent of Canadians thought the Olympics had led to great (51 per cent ) or some (35 per cent) benefits for Canada as a whole. Those results represented an increase of 11 points overall from the 75 per cent who expected benefits in the first pre-Games poll.
OK polls are polls and depending on the question it can skew the numbers..
How do you feel about the Olympics as far as value for the money.. Was it worth it ?
Or did we blow a lot of money away on snow, bringing in new equipment rush, policing and we just have not seen the total bill yet so reality has not set in..
