Given $550 million, how could Edmonton remake the city if it didn't involve a downtown arena?
Last week Gary Bettman, Daryl Katz, and Stephen Mandel got together and wouldn't you know it, things got decided and the deal got worse for the City of Edmonton. Consider me shocked.
As the Oilers continue their pursuit of public funding for a downtown arena, Gary Bettman has called Daryl Katz and Mayor Mandel to New York for a meeting. And the process keeps getting stranger.
Recently Edmonton city councilor Ben Henderson wrote a letter explaining why he supports the downtown arena project. I am however concerned that Mr. Henderson doesn't understand what a CRL is.
