Hindsight 2026: Would another Olympics help or hinder Calgary?

We’re collaborating with the Calgary Journal at MRU to find out.

Hey Calgary!

Do you really want to do the Olympics thing again in 2026?

Are you sure?

We should probably know what we’re getting ourselves into (or, as the case may be, out of). And we should probably have a robust, informed public debate about it.

We’re here to help.

S3 is a collaboration between the Sprawl and the Calgary Journal, which is published by MRU journalism students. We’re pooling our resources to do a deep dive into what Calgary can learn from past Olympics — and how these lessons can inform our future.

Take a look!
