Markham taxpayers are furious about a survey the city approved to be sent out to assess public support of the controversial arena project.

After months of debate, discussion and numerous public meetings on the controversial NHL-size arena project in Markham, a select number of residents received an email survey this week on the $325-million project masked as a “consumer goods” questionnaire.

The survey, administered by AskingCanadians, asked three general questions on the 20,000-seat arena project that has consumed much of the city’s time since the financial framework was approved in April.

According to one Markham resident who took the survey, the three questions simply asked if they knew about the arena project; if there was support for an arena that would not increase taxes; and if residents would still support the project if it was funded through a mixture of public-private funds.
