Thanks Replacement!
Not sure what you're saying with this but its a pet peeve of mine when people keep quoting the MSI fund like it magically solves the missing 100M provincial contribution problem.

A deeper look at how Edmonton has used, is using, and is projected to use the MSI funding means that some bigtime shuffling has to take place.

But any way you slice it taking money out of the MSI fund to allocate it to the arena is going to take away from community initiatives.

Lottery? Keno? That was the WC proposal. Frankly I'd be disappointed if the Cons ran with it. Just another debilitating form of gambling that robs money from families that could otherwise use it. Hey why not suck money out of another addiction. Democratic Government shouldn't be benevolent..
