Yes! For Edmonton sent the following position statement on the proposed arena to the media this afternoon:
Yes 4 Edmonton Arena Project Position Statement
I have been privy to some of the discussions about this, and was opposed to the statement being released because it kind of suggests that everyone who signed up to support the group on the airport issue automatically supports this one too. I don’t believe that is the case.
There are people in the organization who wanted to make a statement on the arena, and that’s fine. The more people who share their thoughts and opinions, the better. But I don’t think it is clear who Yes! For Edmonton speaks for, and that causes me some concern as the group approaches future issues.
It’s not clear whether this position statement will be posted on the Yes! For Edmonton website or what other updates will be made.
