Markham arena: Bratty ‘hugely disappointed’ with reaction to project

The letter said other GTA municipalities have approached Remington about similar projects but noted the company would not consider it anywhere except Markham.

Bratty added in the letter that Remington would continue to work with Markham council but noted it did not agree with tying up its lands for an “undefined period of time.”

When Graham Dewar, one of more than 100 residents at the lively meeting, asked whether that meant Remington was ready to pull out of the project, Peddigrew appeared noncommittal.

Councillor Colin Campbell said although Bratty has been a valuable developer for Markham, the project should not proceed further under the current funding formula.

“It’s just not there,” he said regarding enough city support. “The way I see it, Markham is taking all the risks. If we don’t get an NHL team, there are no rewards.”
