this could be true.. but you have to remember, they are business people out to make as much money as possible, as they should be. Government People who dont understand that need to shoulder a good chunk of the blame.

Triniman, how does Katz rank above Selinger?

EDIT: Ah, sorry, you were just outlining the choices in your starting post - I thought those were your answers!

I dont understand why Katz is even on the list. What exactly has he done at all to do with the stadium?

Could have sworn Dave Asper said that he was putting in his own money. What changed, I wonder?

His fortune has zip to do with the loss of Canwest, by the way.

Maybe he didn't want to take on the risk, given that the Elms shopping district looks iffy.

There are those who believe David never intended on using any of his own money in the first place.

After recent revelations, I'm having a harder time suspending my own disbelief in that theory.

like in the other discussion where I point out that a poster believes it was Katz that authored the deal that gave the MTS centre the non compete clause.

As his father said, tell them anything (translated: lie to them) and break some ground stuff to get a commitment then do what you want as it will be too late to back away.

That;s the oldest scam in the book and our dumbfcuk leaders fell for it hook, line and sinker.

For some reason, this sounds awfully....familiar.

There is no problem with the building- Mayor Katz in an interview today, was perfectly clear that it will be built, and will be a "world Class" stadium and will be more beautiful than the Museum and "his" baseball stadium, which was hampered by having to deal with a bunch of bureaucrats from idiotic governments! lol

I blame rosencrentz. If it weren't for his constant babbling, nonsense posts with which he bombards on websites such as these, then the politicians that read what "we" have to say on these sites wouldn't get so confused and would be able to think critically and logically and would not be constantly sidetracked by his incoherent rantings.
