Did the provincial govt contribute funds to the old building? Commonwealth stadium? Did the Sask provincial govt contribute to the new football stadium?
The answer would be yes to all of the above. So why then and why not now?
I agree. I would have no problem if my municipality decided to kick in a couple of million. Hell, if Darryl promised Fort Mac the AHL team they have stated they want when our arena gets built up here soon, I wouldn't be surprised if Fort Mac was willing to chip in 5-8 million.
