While this is unfortunate it is not a "national" anything. This news is nowhere in the national papers or TV. It barely made the Toronto Star. The only reason the stadium became national news was it involved the Hamilton Tiger Cats (anybody who thinks otherwise is naive).

It's unfortunate but it's true- nobody outside of the cycling community and the city hosting it truly cares where a velodrome gets built.

Even if it did make national news- so what? Denver turned down the entire 1976 winter olympics after they were awarded them. Last I checked, Denver is a thriving, growing city and their Olympic experience is the answer to a trivial pursuit question.
