Let the wealthy pay for their own toys

Calgary Herald - - OPINION -

Why should the lowly tax­pay­ers, many of whom do not at­tend pro hockey or pro foot­ball games on a reg­u­lar ba­sis, pay for the toys and sta­tus sym­bols of the rich and pow­er­ful? Hope­fully, our politicians have the guts to tell Ken King and his wealthy as­so­ciates that the tax­pay­ers of this prov­ince are not go­ing to sub­si­dize the rich and pow­er­ful any longer.

If King and mil­lion­aires/ bil­lion­aires want a new hockey arena, they can pay for it them­selves, or they can sell shares into their busi­ness ven­ture like the Green Bay Pack­ers did in Wis­con­sin. Ge­orge E. Thatcher, Trochu
