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.
Fat chance on the gaming license. Katz pissed that away with his idiotic campaign contributions.

I hope they'll be able to bridge the $6 million per annum difference in some other way (non-voting share sale, one time lottery, etc.). It would also be nice if the province would kick back some sports lottery money back to the Flames and Oilers for arena building purposes.
