Opinions vary and no matter what transpires some folks will be upset. I think most people agree we need arena, I think a majority of people like the concept behind a new downtown arena but how it gets funded and by whom seems to be the larger part of the debate. Now that hockey has resumed perhaps it will be an easier sell and may speed up negotiations. I find it interesting that the WR party has shown some interest in the arena debate, it can only mean they are lobbying for votes in the next election.
