Mandel looking like an asshat lately. One week he's crying about post secondary funding and taking it as a personal slight against Edmonton, next week this. Province has NEVER agreed to any additional funding for the arena and had already maintained always that city could opt MSI if thats what they wanted to do.
Only Mandel, through all of this, was claiming that he secretly knew that the province would find away to come through to help fund this.
Mandel basically being mad because he's lied throughout about a specific provincial contribution and now begging for it.
I like Mandel, but credibility gone. At this point he's only pissing off the provincial govt at the worst possible time for them. This will be remembered and Mandel is planting some ill advised hostile seeds.
