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.
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.
