Seems like the Calgary Flames may have another ally after comments made today from ward six candidate, Alex Colombos. He believes that Calgary must find a creative way to make sure the deal doesn’t affect taxpayers. Right now the current proposal for a new arena has taxpayers paying for a considerable chunk of the construction and maintenance costs. He believes Calgary needs to move forward on something that will work for Calgarians as well as the team. “If we’re going to be a world class city we need a world class venue” Colombos says. These comments were made at a ward candidate meet and greet at Mount Royal University earlier today.
