Events Centre Battle Heating Up
The battle for an $80 million Multiplex, rebranded as an Events Centre is beginning to heat up as referendum day draws closer. A quick look around local social media pages highlights some of the graphic messages being used to make a point. The first graphic was created by local artist Dale Schulz and pretty much speaks for itself.
If creative graphics are any guage of how the vote will go, it looks like the NO side has it. Of course it is far too early in the process to be making any predictions as to the outcome. Taxpayers who remember the conference centre story will be forgiven if they are a little nervous when city hall is asking for the public purse to be opened to the tune of $80,000,000.00.
There are several public open houses hosted by the city between now and referendum day so try and attend one nearest you and make an informed decision on referendum day. Whether it will be the $80 million saviour as some are hoping, or another drain on tax dollars won't be known for years to come, so take your civic duty seriously before you vote.
