The oil companies would provide the arena in a heartbeat, they already built most of the gyms, and the massive Mac Island complex. It's all a tax write off for these guys. 63/881 is a very legitimate concern for highway travel, they don't call it "the highway of death" for nothing.
I've lived in Edmonton for 7 years. I've been to Calgary many times. Can't speak for Vancouver. Drugs aren't an issue in either Edmonton nor Calgary any more than they are in any other major city.
Fort Mac, on the other hand, is a festering cesspool of drug use. I hate that town. Can't even feel safe walking down the street at noon.
