Flames arena fires indignation
Re Game Misconduct (editorial, Sept. 14): Talk in Calgary these days encompasses city financing of the arts and music – in the same breath as the discussion about bankrolling a big chunk of the $550-million needed for a new Calgary Flames arena. History tells us that practitioners of the arts have struggled for centuries with economic deprivation. The NHL, on the other hand, is filthy rich and its practitioners are grossly overpaid.
Kudos to The Globe and Mail for taking a stand against their attempted pillage. – Ken Mackenzie, Calgary
