I don't get some people. BC Place makes 58.1 million dollars a year according to BCTV the other night. Think about what this new stadium in Winnipeg could bring in. You have to spend money to make money, and a capalitist society has to do that.
If they would've kept the Jets Winnipeg would be a far more rich city, but all people would look at was the cost of the stadium at the time, and not the long term money, and businesses it would bring into the city now look at winnipeg. Shall i bring up the population growth of Winnipeg?
0.6% from 96-01, 2.7% from 01-06. 96-01 espescially interesting cuz that was around when the Jets left. They could've grown way more than 3.5% in 10 years, possibly 5-8% and way more businesses and tax dollars flying into Manitoba, and Winnipegs government.
