City not in shape to take on added burden
In the face of full-page advertising from large-scale businesses and sponsors in favour of the Yes vote, someone needs to stand up for the interests of Calgary small business and homeowners.
There are still too many unresolved financial and other issues
Calgary homeowners and small businesses are not in any kind of shape to carry additional burden of taxes and many fee increases that most certainly they will be forced to assume after the lights are turned off at the end of this 10-day party.
I do not believe that the number crunching of the costs relative to the purported and assumed benefits in any way balance.
This is a classic mathematical manipulation whereby they calculate a gross cost for this party and work backwards creating numbers that magically add up to the cost of the games.
This is nothing but a bad deal and this sausage is loaded with fill.
