The World Anti-Doping Agency voted Tuesday to establish its permanent headquarters in Montreal, drawn to the Canadian city by government tax breaks and, perhaps, the opportunity to physically distance itself from the International Olympic Committee. Since its inception in 1999, WADA has been housed in Lausanne, Switzerland, home of the IOC. Legally, WADA is a Swiss foundation that was set up to coordinate international attempts to stop the use of drugs and other banned substances in sports.

The decision, coming after weeks of preparation for an event Lausanne hoped would boost its own prestige, stunned the lakeside tourist city. "Madrid? It feels like April Fools' Day. We've really been conned," said one hotel owner. Lausanne had been seen as the strongest candidate because of Israeli objections to meeting in nearby Geneva.
