Flames arena fires in­dig­na­tion

The Globe and Mail (Ottawa/Quebec Edition) - - GLOBE FOCUS -

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
