Whatever anybody thinks of his votes, decisions, sides he takes on an issue the degree to which he explains rationale is impressive, open, assessible, and an example for all.

Really like the way Iveson is developing and not this term, but the term after, I can see him being mayor if he's still interested in city council.

Impressive candidate.

Don't they write in advance nay votes for Diotte on every issue? He votes contrary to 'most every important issue. That's how he rolls. He's the guy I'd like to see ousted in October.

So if congrats are in order and it appears it might be I'd like to offer it to all the ardent arena supporters over the years. If this is indeed a final go ahead then a tip of my hat to all of those that have so fervently supported this arena design for years.

I may not agree with the funding arrangement, and I don't, but I can be happy for all of the younger people that so passionately want this arena to go ahead.

Again congrats and hopefully selly time for you.

It's over finally.

Until elections then council brings forth motion to cancel the project.

And once it's all said and done the tooth and nail anti-arena people will realize how little it affects their lives. I know they believe they personally pay all the city's taxes but it's a small drop in the bucket.

It's a good day for Edmonton and the future of the city.

I was actually very impressed with Councilor Sohi today. He stepped up and brought something to the debate opposed to adding to the squabbling that usually goes on.

I just feel like any second, Katz will step up to the microphone to announce this historic moment in Edmonton history and then...

Glad they finally squared that circle. I resisted celebrating before because they were always $100mil short. Nice to see Katz chip in some cold, hard cash.

Still think it's too expensive an arena, but that ship has sailed.
