You have it figured out. There is no benefit for anyone outside of the lower mainland. I am sure you have heard of the saying: "There is no hope beyond Hope." We fit into that category. We don't get the benefits, but are expected to pay the bill.
How many Olympic tourists have you seen rushing to our area and spend their hard earned Euros, Yen, Pounds, etc, and the list goes on.
The venues in the lower mainland made sure they sucked the tourists dry so there was nothing left over for us, except paying the bills.
better still
