Didnt the BC govt just spend half a billion dollars on a new roof for BC Place?

If communities/taxpayers want nice facilities to enjoy their entertainment, then they have to contribute towards such facilities. It has always been this way, and it always will be.

BC place is a publicly owned & operated building, is it not? Does the public not receive the revenues.
There is no question the public has to pay. Just a question of how much. And imo in our scenario, in this market, with the leverage the City has, they are paying way to much. Its ridiculous frankly.
