Markham residents against spending cash on NHL arena: Poll

MARKHAM, Ont. – An unofficial survey finds Markham residents don’t want to spend their hard-earned cash on an NHL arena in their city.

The poll – conducted by a group calling themselves “Concerned Citizens of Markham” – released the findings, Friday, which shows nearly 97 per cent of respondents agree taxpayers money should not be used to fund the project.

More than 10,000 people responded to the poll.

The controversial arena project is estimated to cost $325-million.
