Without the support of the shooting sports, the Ontario bid would be incomplete. Competing bids would be able to move forward unhindered.
When Hamilton was bidding for the 2010 Commonwealth Games, they actually tried to bid without shooting. India pounced on that and highlighted their shooting package. While Hamilton scrambled to amend their bid to include shooting, the damage was done. India won the bid.
Personally, I've been invited to attend the Pan Ams Games Bid launch on Oct.2 at the CNE. I won't be attending.
