I dread the day decades down the road that Winnipeg has to build a new arena --- then what? Could the Glendale or Edmonton scenarios happen here? Of course. That's why people everywhere need to stay educated on how citizens across the continent are taken advantage of.
Don't get me wrong, I don't mind a SMALL PERCENTAGE of public money going to funding pro-sports facilities. I would say a maximum of 25 to 30% is enough. I mean, I am all for pay a bit towards the improvement of the quality of life for my community because I want a great place to live. However, I draw the line when scheisters come to town and want us to fully fund their legacy projects, just cause.
