They had it where the Enoch house used to be, were there too many complaints with that location? When BMO is don can they just go back in the old spot until Stampede Trail redevelopment starts up? The space is a bit smaller since BMO is bigger than the Corral.
As Stampede Park gets developed they'll start to lose options, might end up back where the Enoch house was.

Events Centre will take that parking lot, Stampede Trail has an approved DP (plus the hotel), there's the NW lot, but I think they'd like a hotel there too. Maybe where the Saddledome is now?
I just don't see how the province spending money on this project, is going to enable the UCP to win them many more votes. There are lot of people who are indifferent to a new arena and there are some that are in favour as long as it does not involve taxpayer dollars ... municipal or provincial.
A provision in the budget would be an update. Not like the Smith government is totally focused on doing future things.
Can "dragging us 50 years into the past and attempting to devastate our diversification potential" be considered future things?
