Vancouver to host 2006 World Juniors


Canadian Press




1/29/2004

Hockey Canada is holding a news conference at 3pm et/Noon pt at GM Place where they will announce that Vancouver has the winning bid to host the 2006 World Junior Hockey Championship.



Vancouver was one of five finalists chosen by a selection committee, comprised of Hockey Canada president Bob Nicholson, chairman Allan Matthews, vice-president of business operations Scott Smith and Canadian Hockey League commissioner David Branch.



Nicholson, Matthews and Branch are the voting members.



The other finalists were Ottawa, Quebec City, Saskatoon and a joint bid from London and Kitchener, Ont.



Each of the five pitched the merits of their respective bids on Jan. 18 in Calgary to the selection committee. The five finalists were chosen from 11 bids, which also included Edmonton, Halifax, Hamilton, Winnipeg, Montreal and Toronto.



Canada has hosted the world men's under-20 hockey tournament six times. Halifax (2003), Winnipeg (1999), Red Deer, Alta., (1995), Saskatoon (1991), Hamilton (1978).



The 2003 tournament in Halifax set records in attendance, television ratings and finances with a profit of $3.6 million and an estimated economic impact in the region of more than $20 million.



Grand Forks, N.D., is the host of the 2005 world junior championship.

yeah the your call always has whiney people from toronto complaining, whenever someone is a free agent or on a trade block Toronto should trade for them and no one else.

Yeah, but how many Olympics has Winterpeg hosted? :[

Vancouver's getting a lot of international sports attention, and watching people from Toronto cry is just pricless.

Atleast they still have CBC Saturday Nights Leafs Hockey.

I can see people's point's that vancouver isn't the best city to host it though. I would rather see it somewhere like Victoria or Kelowna/Kamloops.

Same here, hell, Edmonton would have been an awsome choice IMO, Im just glad its not southen ontario...maybe give those "Toronto is the hockey center of the universe" bullshitters something to think about.

Kelowna and Victoria are hosting games as well? This makes Vancouver getting it worse. I thought a major part was logistics? What makes more sense, having the games in 2 arenas close to each other or in 3 venues where the teams have to travel more? This decision was strictly politcal and money driven, it is typical of Hockey Canada. And for those thinking Vancouver can showcase Canada, people will look around the city and think they are in Asia. People know what I am talking about.

the beef i have against vancouver getting the world juniors is not that they took it from a more diserving city. i'm from BC, i love my province. however our economy is in the shitter. should we have got the olympics? no. the world jrs? probably not. i love the olympics and world jrs, but those arent going to open the 90+ schools they closed in our province this year.

Thats been the center of debate as far as the olympics goes in BC since Vancouver made a bid.

Something like this will boost our economy. It will create jobs while upgrading th cities to support the olympics, plus, if we do a good job, it will make BC look even better to tourists than it already does. We we also have many new facilites for training our atheletes. Gotta spend money to make money.

why would people from Toronto be bitching exactly? If you read the article, you'd see that Toronto wasn't even one of the cities who were bidding. The only two places remotely near were Kitchener and London and they're still a few hours away. :|

cause they're from toronto.

any major sporting event held in Canada that isnt hosted in Toronto is a grave injustice and purely political.

Well it is true that Vancouver has a higher asian population although that still isn't right to say.

I can see the olympics creating jobs but I've been through the WJ's in Winnipeg and it really did nothing for us. :-\

Yeah, the WJs wont help the province too much, finacially or tourism, as the WJs isnt exactly a huge internationall event. I didnt mean the WJs would create jobs, I ment the Olympics will. The WJs will be a good showcase for what we can expect as far as hockey goes in the 2010 olympics though. Also, hosting the WJs wont be too much of a tax burden either.

Have to defend the centre of the universe:

The problem with the rest of Canada is that you all have a short man complex, you wish you were taller, but there's nothing you can do to change it so you spend your time trying to insult people who are tall (in this case people from T-dot). Same thing happens in the States with New York, everyone else are a bunch of haters.

its not better, its just that Toronto is the most important part of the country. No matter how much people bitch you cant deny the fact that we pump more money into the country then any other city.

MoRcHeEbA
01-30-2004, 04:07 PM
so because they pump the most money into the economy in canada they should be the best at sports in canada? they should get everything served to them on a silver plater? They should be allowed to bitch when something doesn't go there way?

Marbear
01-30-2004, 05:15 PM
well with all due respect, everywhere else in Canada bitches when something doesn't go their way, so how come they can and Toronto can't?

I mean, don't get me wrong. The people who are bitching on tsn.ca are morons because if they actually read the article they'd see that Toronto wasn't even in the running for the tournament. But I'm just pointing out a double standard. Don't mind me. :$
