CALGARY – Alberta Premier Jason Kenney says he’s happy he’s not being dragged into the debate over a new arena for the NHL Calgary Flames.
The city, the Flames and the Calgary Stampede have agreed on terms for an event centre that would replace the 36-year-old Saddledome.
Calgary city council has yet to approve the tentative deal.
Calgarians have until Monday to offer feedback before council votes.
Kenney says the arena is not a provincial responsibility and he’s happy to stay out of talks.
The estimated cost of the proposed 19,000-seat venue is $550 million.
