Edmonton

City-wise, Edmonton is the un-sexiest Canadian option on this list. However, their bid is a lot better than Toronto’s. In fact, it’s one of the more alluring packages. Here it is in detail:

Wow. Those Olympic Villages are cool setups. They have some fun activities for the players — especially the chance at some golf. What’s more, they have some good facilities for practicing and playing the games.

I’m not sure the players would love it, though, because they want access to restaurants, not just delivery service. I guess delivery from top-end restaurants is better than food trucks.

Their response to COVID-19 has been pretty good, though.

I wouldn’t mind Edmonton for the Colorado Avalanche.
