Like a runner tearing down the track, Niagara’s Canada Summer Games bid committee has cleared a bunch of hurdles — but others are fast approaching.
The next big one is March 1. That’s the day the Canada Games Council visits Niagara and tours some of the venues.
“We took a little bit of a break after submitting our bid, but now we’re getting ready for the full-day site visit and we have a number of things planned,” said Doug Hamilton, chair of the local bid committee.
“We have already submitted our agenda for the day to the bid evaluation committee, last week. Now we are organizing the troops to have everybody ready.”
The visit will start from Scotiabank Convention Centre in Niagara Falls and include Brock University, the site of the athlete’s village, and Meridian Centre, where opening and closing ceremonies would take place.
