We ex­pect a re­turn on in­vest­ment

Re: “Flames say new arena talks with city hall are dead,” Sept. 13.

Calgary Herald - - OPINION -

What a bla­tant at­tempt to in­flu­ence the com­ing elec­tion in Cal­gary. It’s ob­vi­ous the Flames’ own­ers want a pro-arena mayor and coun­cil­lors elected.

Cal­gar­i­ans have made it clear to Mayor Na­heed Nen­shi and our coun­cil­lors that we are not in favour of a huge spend of cash to­ward a new arena. We want tax­payer in­put lim­ited and a good re­turn for our in­vest­ment.

We be­lieve Nen­shi has been bar­gain­ing in good faith with the own­ers to­ward this end.

Ar­gu­ing for or against a new arena is not the is­sue here and we hope Cal­gar­i­ans un­der­stand what is hap­pen­ing and vote ac­cord­ingly. The bil­lion­aire own­ers and Gary Bettman should stay out of our pol­i­tics.

Gre­gory Beck and Jo-Ann Ma­son, Cal­gary
