TORONTO - Ontarios Liberal government cannot say what the budget is for security and transportation at the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto, Tourism and Sport Minister Michael Chan admitted Thursday. Zaire Franklin Jersey . "We dont have a finalized number on that," Chan admitted to reporters after ducking Opposition questions in the legislature. "Look at the Vancouver (Olympics), where they had one number come out on security and they had to revise it about four or five times, so I dont want to speculate." The final bill for security at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics came in at just under $1 billion, almost five times the original budget. The Ontario government was already under fire for admitting the $700 million cost of building the athletes village for the Toronto games is not included in the $1.4 billion budget, and the Opposition accused the Liberals of trying to hide the final bill. "Theyve decided theyre going to have that $1.4 billion budget to cover a certain amount of things, and then any time anything comes up thats going to inflate that budget, theyre going to put it somewhere else and not be honest with the public about what these games are really going to cost," said PC critic Rod Jackson. The Progressive Conservatives said the Liberals wasted over $1 billion cancelling gas plants to save seats in the 2011 election, and the fact they still dont know the budget for security and transportation at the Pan Am Games is appalling. "For him to not be able to answer what the security and transportation costs are going to be for the Pan Am Games is terrifying to me," said Jackson. "This is a minister who doesnt have a grip, is a disaster on this file, and he needs to step down." The New Democrats also lashed out at Chan for refusing to say what the government has budgeted for security and transportation at the international sporting event. "Its another example of a government claiming it wants to be open and transparent and not doing the basics like letting people know what the costs are at the games," said NDP Leader Andrea Horwath. "You cant claim you want to be transparent and open and then not provide figures and information when asked by the opposition." But Chan was insistent that he did not want to provide a budget figure now only to have to change it later on, and he lashed out at the Conservatives for saying the security bill alone will be hundreds of millions of dollars. "Mr. Rod Jackson mentioned a lot of numbers but to me those are rubbish numbers, fantasized numbers, because at the moment I dont have a number," he said. Jackson said he doesnt know if the Liberals have a budget figure for security and transportation that they dont want to release or if they truly dont have a budget yet. "Either way, its appalling and terrifying that this government doesnt have a grip," he said. The government had to tell officials with the TO2015 Pan Am committee to tighten the rules on expenses after some questionable claims by executives, who are eligible for a total of $7 million in bonuses for staying on the job until the event is over. JMarcus Webb Jersey . A player confirmed to TSN on the condition of anonymity that he received his ballot yesterday. Another confirms hes been told to expect his shortly.

The Blazers fell to Boston 90-89.Aldridge hurt his thumb when his hand came down on the knee of Sacramentos DeMarcus Cousins in the second quarter of the Blazers 98-95 victory over the Kings on Monday night.Ive definitely sprained my thumb a few times, but this was on a different level, he said. I couldnt even move it.The 6-foot-11 power forward had X-rays immediately following the injury but they were inconclusive. An MRI early Thursday revealed a radial collateral ligament tear.Aldridge leads Portland with averages of 23.5 points and 10.4 rebounds and 1.18 blocks per game. Hes one of just three NBA players averaging at least 23 points and 10 rebounds.That was the last thing I wanted to hear, Blazers guard Damian Lillard said about Aldridges injury. Were an NBA team, its not like we can stop our schedule until he gets healthy. We just gotta keep on moving forward and try to win games.The injury is a big blow to the Blazers, who were already dealing with a depleted front line. Center Robin Lopez is out with a fractured right hand and centre Joel Freeland is sidelined with a right shoulder strain.Starting small forward Nicolas Batum left Thursday nights game against the Celtics after he aggravatedd a wrist injury that had been bothering him. Malik Hooker Jersey. Batum said afterward he was scheduled to have an MRI.With Thursdays loss, Portland is 31-13 and sitting in third place in the Western Conference, but the Blazers have lost five of six.Its tough, weve been in a pretty good rhythm most of the season, Aldridge said. We have a lot of guys here who can step up and play better, and make plays. So I think the team shouldnt stall, were going to get guys back soon, so that should be good for us.Aldridge said he will have surgery within the week. He was wearing a black sleeve on his wrist and thumb when he spoke to reporters in the Blazers locker room.He said he discussed with the doctors whether he could play with it, but ultimately it was decided that he should have the surgery.They didnt feel the risk was going to be worth the reward, he said. It could be worse on the back end, or I could even wait two weeks and try to play and not end up playing anyways. So we just felt like, to us, the right thing to do is take care of it now.In his ninth NBA season, all with Portland, Aldridge recently moved into second on the franchise list for both points (11,782) and rebounds (5,095). He trails only Clyde Drexler with 18,050 points and 5,339 rebounds.Weve got to hold the fort down, Portland guard Wesley Matthews said. Weve got to figure it out, weve got to find ways to win and continue to play basketball the right way. Its gotten us 31 wins. Cheap Soccer Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Hockey Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys China Wholesale Baseball Jerseys China Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Near Me Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic MLB Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Throwback Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
