Council January 29, 2013 at 7:00 pm re Proposed Arena

Website :


Proposed 'NHL-ready Arena'

Council Meeting

Residents URGENTLY Needed

Tuesday, January 29, 2013


Dear Markham Friends,

Thank you for your support of the petition calling on the Mayor and City Council NOT to proceed with the proposed NHL-ready arena project, by using taxpayer dollars, for the benefit of private businessmen. 

There is an important Meeting as follows:
Tuesday, January 29, 2013, 7:00 pm
Markham Civic Centre (corner of Hwy. 7 and Warden)

The following two Notice of Motions will be voted on:
1. financial framework
2. deferral of the site plan

It is important that you attend this meeting and VOICE your concerns, as it affects all Markham taxpayers.

For unknown reasons, Mayor Frank Scarpitti continues to be a proponent of having this arena built.

It appears that the Mayor and some Councillors may have forgotten their role as elected officials in representing the will of their residents. We all need to remind them that taxpayers were never asked if we wanted to support this endeavor and the fact is -- WE DO NOT SUPPORT THIS FINANCIAL FRAMEWORK or SITE PLAN AS PRESENTED.

It is imperative that ALL of us attend the Jan 29th meeting. EVERYONE attending will have the opportunity to make a 5-minute deputation. It is time for Markham taxpayers to SPEAK UP.. or risk paying for a white-elephant arena.

Deputations SHOULD be heard at the beginning of the Council meeting.

Please bring your neighbours, friends, and relatives.

This arena should be voted-down on January 29th -- unless our Mayor finds yet another way to stall this from ending.

Just a reminder, if you have not already done so, please write to the Mayor and Council, as indicated below. OUR E-MAILS AND ATTENDANCE AT MEETINGS SPEAK LOUD AND CLEAR -- THE ARENA MUST BE PRIVATELY OWNED/OPERATED/FUNDED!

Send an e-mail to the following:
       -   Mayor Scarpitti & Councillors at: mayor&
       -   Acting Clerk:
       -   The Economist & Sun Newspaper:

Thank you for your continued support.
