NOT ONE CORPORATE DOLLAR To Go To Brad Wall's New Football Stadium - Funding Totally By Tax Dollars From City And Provincial Tax Payers

Brad Wall wants a new football stadium in Saskatchewan. Fair ball. I see no real problem with that .... I go to Roughrider games myself. 

HOWEVER .. I thought that Saskatchewan was this new Mecca of corporate expansion and prosperity! If you listen to Premier Wall, the corporate sector are the saviours of the province and we should scrape and bow and kiss their feet.

Yet in his huge plan to build a new football stadium .. how much corporate money (from the Oil industry and the Potash industry) is being contributed towards construction ...... ???? Nothing! ..... NOT ONE RED CENT!

See ...  'Free Enterprise' is not free.  The citizens who pay the taxes ALWAYS carry the burden with these damned Conservative schemes - whether through corporate tax cuts, money for banks or minuscule royalty regimes.

I am now waiting for corporate apologists to flock here and point out that the existing stadium charges a few million for 'naming rights' currently held by Mosaic potash company. That is on the existing stadium. How much is Mosaic, Potash Corp, Agrium as well as the OIL industry chipping in for the new stadium???? Nada. Zip. Nothing.

why Leftdog that is always as it goes - unless they can "invest" and thus get some money out of their "donation" beyond what they would get normally (tax receipt) the better "donation scam" is naming rights and advertising at the venue - better payback.

Pretty sad considering the amount of investment we get here in Fort McMurray from big corporations. I'm rather surprised I must admit.
