“If business does well so will our city … if we can build a downtown with more density … it will be good for business.”

Really.  There’s more to life and living than just business as a criterion for what we do.

This Business In Calgary article, March 2016, promotes the proposed CalgaryNEXT project, although it purports to be an objective analysis.  The publisher of the magazine states that if “business does well so will our city” (page 36).

The owners contribution to the proposed project would be borrowed money, which, “if the city is unwilling to grant this loan“, they will seek another source.

The CalgaryNEXT proposal should be rejected.  No city planner has envisioned a hockey arena for this part of our city; and, we should not be subsidizing private business.
