CAL­GARY (CP) - NHL com­mis­sioner Gary Bettman has told Cal­gary to get mov­ing on a new arena for the Flames, but Mayor Na­heed Nen­shi says the city will not be hur­ried into a mul­ti­mil­lion-dol­lar pro­ject. Bettman told the city’s busi­ness com­mu­nity at a cham­ber of com­merce event Mon­day there should be more ur­gency to get the pro­ject un­der­way, par­tic­u­larly from city coun­cil. The 20,000-seat arena and 30,000-seat foot­ball sta­dium, part of the pro­posed Cal­gar­yNEXT pro­ject, will cost an es­ti­mated $890 mil­lion.
