I know a lot of friends and supporters have questions about my vote yesterday. Perspective would vary in part depending on what people think we were voting on.
The actual motion was to endorse a design concept and approve a very specific updated framework to fund and lease out the arena. It is more or less the same arrangement that I voted against in 2011.
But politically, that wasn’t the way the vote was framed at all – the question it came down to was more or less, do you support downtown Edmonton?
