You may be happy with the idea of paying for the 'Cats twice, once at the gate and once with you taxes, but many of us aren't happy with the idea.

The fact that sports team owners have been scamming governments into subsidizing their businesses for years doesn't make it right or acceptable.

If BY wants public money to build/run the stadium, then it needs to be in a position to benefit the public, not just BY. If he wants to profit from it exclusively, then he needs to put together private funding.

Imagine owning a house and paying the mortgage and maintenance on it while someone else acts as landlord and collects all the profits. Great for the acting landlord, not so great for anyone else.
