Question; What's the level of public support for (insert latest megaproject)?
Answer; What do you want it to be?
The guys behind the poll will probably promise that the arena can no more raise taxes than a man can have a baby.
And of course, they'll follow the hair-splitting technicalities of the Canadian Copyright Board when they wanted a copy tax on camera SD cards... It's not a tax, it's a levy. See, we didn't raise taxes.
