After reading that article, I'm not so convinced anymore. Reading that article paints a new picture.
Critics say they have serious doubts about Roustan’s pitch, his business record and assertion the arena doesn’t need a major pro sports team to become viable. They are also wary about any extra tax burden on Markham residents.
Donna Bush, vice-president of the Markham Village City Ratepayers Association, told council that her preliminary research through quick online probing shows there should be concern about Roustan’s “integrity and credibility” and business acumen in steering the project.
