Edmonton Pro-Arena Campaign Puts Pressure On City Council To Approve Oilers' Deal
Published May 8, 2013
IN NEED OF A POWER PLAY: The EDMONTON JOURNAL's Paula Simons wrote the idea of getting Katz, Edmonton Mayor Stephen Mandel and Alberta Premier Alison Redford together "to hammer out a deal isn’t realistic." It is an "exercise in wishful thinking." About the "only power" the Downtown Vibrancy Coalition has is to "pressure wavering city councillors ... to support the deal." If Edmonton's "corporate elites are really so crazy about this arena idea, why haven’t they brought any real support to the table?" It would be a "genuine show of good faith if Edmonton’s corporate sector suggested something to break the impasse" (EDMONTON JOURNAL, 5/7).
