Post Date: Saturday, April 01, 2017

In response the recent comments in the media by Ken King of the Calgary Sport and Entertainment Corporation regarding a new arena for the Calgary Flames, Mayor Naheed Nenshi has the following statement:

"I am confident that a new project that has public benefit for public money exists, and I know both sides are working very hard on that. The owners of the Calgary Flames have repeatedly assured Calgarians that they would not threaten to move the team, and I assume that they have not shifted from that position. I plan to enjoy the playoff run while letting the conversations continue!"
