An Indigenous-led partnership is set to move forward with plans to host the 2030 Winter Olympics in Vancouver and Whistler. However, organizers say all groups must be on board by December if the proposal is to go ahead. This would be the first Indigenous-led bid for an Olympic Games.
Tawanee Joseph, who is shepherding Indigenous partnerships for the bid said We do not move forward without one another, … It’s important for each of the organizations that we work with and the nations to make sure that they identify things that are important to them, including challenges, including opportunities. And that’s the process that we’re embarking upon now.”
The proposed bid on Tuesday, displays plans to resume many of the venues that hosted events during the 2010 Games in Vancouver. The Rogers Arena woul;d host hockey, while bobsled, skeleton and luge would be back at the Whistler Sliding Centre. Long-track speedskating would return to the Richmond Olympic Oval.
