I'll wait until all parties involved says its dead

but to me, killing this 480M deal over 55M seems absurd...but this is Edmonton
Like I said, Staples seems to be basing it on the idea that councilors will kill it on the 8th because they don't have the remaining 55 mil. He doesn't have any proof that they will, he just doesn't see a solution. To kill it outright after so much money and so much time has been invested seems absurd, but like you said... this is Edmonton.

EDIT: The anti-arena crowds on Twitter and Facebook seem to be celebrating already. It's interesting that this is all based off Staples' opinion.
