Stadium in Calgary

The Mayor talks to Calgary about their new stadium idea.
I didn’t realize Mayor Fougere was a fan of “big ideas”.

Of course you’ll have to consider the Mayor’s figures in context.
$25M from the Riders for a $278M stadium isn’t even 10%.

“This way, for $73-million, we get a brand new stadium.”
Well, not really, since Regina’s citizens are paying more than that in provincial taxes too, and in ticket fees not present on the paid-for Taylor Field.
