Ontario Offers Support to Guadalajara 2011 PanAm Games
Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty today issued the following statement:
"Last Friday I traveled to Mexico City at the invitation of President Mario Vázquez Raña of the Pan American Sports Organization to discuss Toronto's bid for the 2015 PanAm Games. I impressed upon the president that Ontario is fully committed to hosting a successful Games in 2015.
During our meeting, President Vasquez Raña mentioned difficulties being encountered by the 2011 PanAm Games being held in Guadalajara, Mexico.
I informed the president that Ontario is ready, willing and able to offer assistance, including helping to plan and provide logistical and organizational help to ensure the best possible experience for athletes. This type of support for the Guadalajara Games would not add any financial burden to Ontario, but would come in the form of in-kind contributions from the public service."
