      Edmonton, Canada

Are you sick of all the bluffs, blackmail, and repeated threats by the Katz Group over a new publicly funded arena? Have you supported the Oilers unconditionally over the years, and are now disgusted at being held hostage by the Katz Group? Can you see the deal between the Katz Group and the City of Edmonton getting worse and worse for taxpayers (e.g., look at Seattle's new arena deal where, unlike Mr. Katz, private investor Chris Hansen will put $300 million up front, guarantee the City's contribution, agree to be independently audited, and not rely on a CRL)? Help send a message to Edmonton City Councillors that enough is enough -- stop the negotiations with the Katz Group!

      I do not believe that the new arena should be publicly funded. Mr Katz is one of the richest men on the planet, perhaps he should consider funding it himself. I believe it would give him great gratification to know that he singlehandedly funded this arena which he could call his own.

      The downtown area project will only benifit and small number of people and will cost far too much public money when there are a large number of other projects that will benifit a large segment of the population
