Well said Ryan, but not the entire story is told. The 2014 Budget pie shows the following in terms of capital expenditures: Of the $158M cost $69.1M went to Pan Am (Stadium I suspect with the prov. paying $57M) $8M to Pan Am Precinct, $7.7M to West Harbour, $3M to Pan Am Rec Center, $2.6M to Downtown Projects and $.5M to city housing. Almost the entirety to downtown related capital works.

So who is subsidizing whom exactly?

And what about the majority of services like Fire and Police....what is the proportion demanded by downtown vs suburbs?

I like your analysis but this side of the story is seldom told.
