This week was a busy one for Ken King from The Flames and the city! They met earlier in the week to discuss the future of CalgaryNEXT, our new arena project. The city voted 12-3 in favour of continuing to look at the project so it isn’t dead yet.
The Flames originally estimated an $890 Million price tag. The city then rebuttled saying no it would actually cost $1.8 Billion. Which is nearly double. Now The Flames are saying that’s wrong but it will probably be around $1.3 Billion. Nothing was confirmed and the city sent King home to whip up a potential Plan B project to discuss again in 3 months. There is more info here.
Either way we’re getting fed up with all this talking, and lack of action. So we decided to send The Flames a little message along with a gift!
