  • Description

    Doubts about the Olympic Games starting on time have ben officially set aside. The full International Olympic Committee accepted a Canadian promise on Monday (2 february) that the summer games centre in Montreal... or most of it...will be ready well before starting date in July.

    The IOC met in Innsbruck where the winter olympics begin later this week. The man who convinced the IOC that Montreal could make it was Dr. Victor Goldbloom, a minister in the Quebec provincial government.

    He told the committee that the proof of the pudding was in the eating. He insisted questions and answers would have no significant bearing on the ultimate outcome, only accomplishment will be the determining factor.

    He said the world will little note nor longer remember what was being discussed at the meeting but it will remember if the games in Montreal come off satisfactorily and with dignity.

    The Minister added that this was hat Canada was committed to do.

    The IOC spent the last two day listening to such assurances by the Canadians.

    And with just five and a half months to go, the IOC said it was convinced that whatever the problems, the games will start on time.
