Honestly, they probably won't have a problem with provincial funding.
They are proceeding down there, they just do things far quieter than they do in Edmonton, in a much more pro-business environment, in a city that likes it's owners a ton more(the Northlands equivalent down there gave up all revenue on that building to the flames ownership group a long time ago).

It's also part of why the province is so adamantly against any kind of participation, they know full well any money that goes into Edmonton's arena will have to be doubled up. In essence, Edmonton is fighting Calgary's arena battle for them.
