No Tax Dollars for Pro Sports Arenas

Alberta

To Mayor Nenshi and Calgary councillors:

Calgarians support their hockey team and arena voluntarily through ticket sales and concessions, not through taxes. At the end of the day, a professional sports/entertainment arena is still a for-profit business. Businesses have been able to pay for their arenas in other Canadian cities and the Flames should be able to pay for a new arena in Calgary.

We the undersigned call on the Calgary city councillors and the mayor 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.
