Yes it did, the whole issue dominated the papers for a good month. The 900 million needed is funded through increased property taxes.

What's with all the negativity? This project will almost certainly go forward even if its just because of the location. I can't see any reason to believe otherwise and your constant negativity could almost be construed as negative advertising. Do you work in the industry? Do you

LOL at "Stanley cup line construction postponed indefinitely"
