We have so many talk show expects half way across the country, you never know whos talking fact or whos shovelling doo doo. I'm going to pose some questions here and hopefully the Ottawa posters can help me here with Truth or doo doo.
(1) One of the problems with the Ottawa franchise is they get no help from the City of Ottawa. Parking and concessions go to the city not to the team. Is that true? (When the Lions played at old Empire Stadium, parking and concessions went to the City.)
(2) Has the City been able to offer a break on the rental of Frank Clair Stadium?
(3) Because of Ottawa being full of Civil Servants, Businesses don't buy Seasons tickets to give away to Customers, because their Customers work for the Government and are not allowed to accept them. Is that a true statement?
(4) Taxes Owners have a higher tax burden. (Toronto and Hamilton are in Ontario too, shouldn't the taxes be the same?) I know in BC their is a Translink tax that effects Gasoline and Parking, does Ottawa have any strange taxes that could hurt a potential owner?
So help me out Ottawa posters....Is there an ounce of truth to any of these items?
