A slight majority of Calgarians surveyed for a recent poll support a potential bid for the city to host the 2026 Winter Olympics.

 Fifty-three per cent of those polled by phone supported the bid, one third opposed it, and 13 per cent were undecided.

NRG Research Group conducted the telephone survey for the City of Calgary.

Five hundred Calgarians were polled between July 23 and July 29. The polling company used a random mix of landlines and cellphones and included a mix of citizens from various age groups, genders, ethnic backgrounds and all four quadrants of the city.
