- Mayor Stephen Mandel, Mayor Naheed Nenshi
The arena is costing too much and will not be used nearly as much as a high speed train.
The arenas benefits are low, and the funds created by the arena will not directly affect the citizens.
By contrast, arena funds could be diverted to high speed rail. The business that goes back and forth from Edmonton to Calgary would be made easier and a lot more pleasant with a high speed train.
Dear Mayor Stephen Mandel,
The arena and its benefits are a little uncertain and will cost us way too much.
Pooling funds with Calgary to create a high speed train to and from will benefit us for years to come and will prevent another "rexall place" from happening again.
Please do what's best for the entire population of Edmonton, and not just the rich or the sports goers.
