Calgary Sun - - COMMENT -

It oc­curs to me that in or­der for the tax­pay­ers to pass any judg­ment on whether Mr. Nen­shi has han­dled the arena file ap­pro­pri­ately or rea­son­ably, the tax­pay­ers re­quire the de­tails as to what this city’s beloved Flames are of­fer­ing. Fur­ther­more, in or­der for the tax­pay­ers to pass judg­ment on Mr. Nen­shi, th­ese same tax­pay­ers should be of­fered the de­tails on what ex­actly the city is de­mand­ing. It is only then can tax­pay­ers make an in­formed de­ci­sion at the bal­lot box in Oc­to­ber. This lat­est state­ment from the Flames is clearly meant to sway the vot­ers in the up­com­ing elec­tion against Mr. Nen­shi. I am cer­tainly not a sup­porter of Mr. Nen­shi; how­ever, I am will­ing to give the man his due, rather than be swayed by the me­dia ap­par­ently in­tent on tak­ing this opportunity to launch an­other at­tack on his wor­ship. I, for one, feel I de­serve the full story. Per­haps the Flames are in­deed de­mand­ing too much? I am an ar­dent fan of NHL hockey, but not at ab­so­lutely all costs.

CRAIG COULSON (You are right, the peo­ple need to know the de­tails of the lat­est pro­posal. We have heard noth­ing since the Cal­gar­yNEXT un­veil.)
