What amount would you think is available that is not presently projected, planned.

WEll lets see, community rec centers, libraries, fitness centers vs Pro Hockey arena for richstars.

I wonder where I'd rather see the money go. Helping all families establish healthy physical lives and pursuits or funding a Pro Arena where only the wealthy can attend.
Ah yes, the rub!! Of course an arena will only be used for hockey...

It's staggering that there is still a contingent that believes that an arena construction is an either or proposition that will kill any hopes of community rec centres or libraries being built.
