That bloody museum.....again....

....this time for $3.6 Million....

http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/breakingnews/City-to-debate-36-million-break-for-human-rights-museum-119939084.html

BTW...they're still about $40 Million shy of their goal, so this nonsense will continue I suspect.

Time to cut the project back!! (perhaps turn it into a water park....something that is needed.)

1. Does anyone know what period this $3.6 Million covers?
2. Whats the citys plan if they give the museum a break and every other business in town lines up with "me too" ?

its not like we never expected them to ask I just wish that the city said no outright without even taking it to council.

Hopefully, that's what will happen. (I'm not sure there is anyone at the city that could have just said no.)

seems to me that its more fair to give business a tax break that actually bring in some sort of revenue to the city.

3.5 million would buy 1750ish season tickets for the NHL

this would be able to give each community centre in our city 25 season tickets each to be able to allow 1000 people from their catchment area to each attend 1 game ( or the board be allowed to attend some games )

not advocating this, but as an example sending a total of 70000 people who might not be able to attend an NHL game.. to go actually experience it... would probably make a better difference in our city then supporting the museum of some deaths are more important then others.

Anything! Anything would be better than to put more money into that hole in the ground.

I mean....c'mon...it is the ultimate buzz kill!!

3.5 million per year (because you know they wont stop asking and after a while it will even be a line item in the budget) spent on art Smile

DeanK- Jets season tickets as opposed to making our kids and grankids miserable for an afternoon? Shame on you and all the other (JTF), GOM, )and so many other negative nanny posters!
This project is one of 6 projects that will make Winnipeg "world class"! Long overdue because all we are known for is losing the Jets, a 60 year old football stadium, no more white bears at the zoo, and high user fees from our City, but no new taxes!
I cannot wait for IKEA, so I can buy some really cheap but good looking furniture!
