Ward 7 News – New Facilities for the Flames

New Facilities for the Flames, Stamps, Hitmen and Roughnecks – CalgaryNEXT

Yesterday, the owners of the Flames, Stamps, Hitmen and Roughnecks – Calgary Sports and Entertainment Corporation – announced a proposal that would build facilities to house those teams and redevelop West Village, an area in major need of redevelopment.

This mega-project comes with a huge price tag and includes free land and taxpayer subsidies for a private corporation, both of which I am fundamentally against.  There are several other questions about the project that remain unanswered.  Clear answers to these questions need to be understood before anyone can determine whether or not this proposal is the right one.

I have taken the time to write down my current position on the issue in the form of a blog post.  I hope you take the time to read it.  Please don’t hesitate to share your thoughts with me as I always appreciate hearing from you.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer.
