A more apt example would be the tanking Markham arena plan where there is already a competing arena in the area. It would seem now that Markham council has no interest in becoming Glendale North...
But if I understood the point of the article CGG linked, there are no benefits from a city or municipality building any sports facilities period. Doesn't matter if it's replacing one. By his argument those old arenas weren't beneficial either when they were built..
I'm not against Edmonton or QC building arenas. But there have been way too many times general themed arguments being used against Glendale end up being somewhat hypocritical.
