In his infinite wisdom, Edmonton's Mayor Stephen Mandel & City Council are proud to co headline Edmonton Int'l Airport Authority's announcement of the expansion of the Edmonton Int'l Airport with its new wing & shopping centre at the terminal. Along with the associated CDXII (412) new jobs. Well those jobs go II Leduc & Leduc County. IV the most part, they add zilch II the Edmonton city property tax or business tax base. Would it not have made more sense II have the Mayor & City Council add these shops II the Edmonton Municipal/City Centre Airport where the buildings, infrastructure, & power hookups are already in place? Thus giving the downtown core a real economic boost. Plus, there would be an influx of new customers II Daryl Katz's new arena downtown IV the Oilers, once its built.
