The answer would be yes to all of the above. So why then and why not now?
You can't really compare the province/city funding Commonwealth stadium to the new hockey arena. Commonwealth stadium was built to host the commonwealth games and is owned/operated by the city of edmonton.
Whereas the arena will be built for the sole purpose of professional sports and the revenue stream will be held by a private individual.
