My only point on all this (or on this one anyways) is I really dont know what the City could have done any different to make it go quicker & to get it done, other than to give the guy a blank cheque.
Give the guy a gaming/casino license and be done with it. Lets get this freaking thing going.
A gaming license does not cost the tax payer directly. Ultimately, I don't care if Katz gets a sweet deal.
Heck, I want him to have a sweet deal, I don't want the Oilers to be subject to the whims of an Alberta economy that can topsy turvy every 10-12 years. This deal has to work for the Oilers not just for today but for whatever the future holds.
