Re: Roof collapse at B.C. Place Stadium:


I warned the city and local news media about the deteriorating B.C. Place roof in my book, Leverage Olympic Momentum, way back in March of 2006, but it fell on deaf ears.


And here’s what I wrote in my blog on July 27: "… What will happen to the rag-tag roof at B.C. Place? It might hold water, but from the inside it looks like a country quilt. At the eleventh hour, will VANOC decide that something has to be done about the patchwork mess they call a ceiling … and will the community have to foot the bill to make it look respectable?"


My warning about the B.C. Place roof and countless other hidden Olympic costs is just one of my many Olympic predictions that have already come true. — Maurice Cardinal,
