AB: No Tax Dollars for Pro Sports Arenas


Click here for printable version.

To Mayor Nenshi and the Premier of Alberta:

Calgarians support their hockey team and arena voluntarily through ticket sales and concessions, not through taxes. The City of Calgary can support the construction of a new arena in many ways without asking taxpayers to open their wallets.

At the end of the day, a professional sports/entertainment arena is still a for-profit business.

We the undersigned call on the Alberta government and City of Calgary to reject any public funding request for the construction of a new NHL arena in Calgary.

You have the power to change who influences politics in our country: big unions, big corporations and government-funded special interest groups can be challenged by the contributions of thousands of individual taxpayers who care to make a difference.
