The Events Centre History in Videos

I’m sure most of you reading this already know about how the events centre was recently shot down for funding by council; however, you may not know exactly how it all started, or maybe you don’t remember. What the initial idea was, the reasoning, and how far back the planning goes. Fortunately for us, CHAT TV has decided to share the history with us, in video form. Many have stated that even though it was voted out (5 to 4) this year, it still remains in the council’s books, meaning it will happen, eventually, sometime, in the future… maybe? But as also pointed out, the wait = more money.

    The article below is from Windsor Ontario. Their City Council had a similar desire to build an arena (6500 seat Events Centre) They presented this idea in April 2006. The Windsor Spitfires have been playing in their new barn for a year now. Is this process a more difficult one for Medicine Hat?
    The BSBP have dedicated 6 million in land and infrastructure to our Events Centre project.
    Don’t we deserve better from our City Council? Just asking.

    The prospects game is coming up this month at this arena.
