37 NHL-sized arenas. That’s what the proposed Teck mine in Alberta is roughly equal to in terms of cost. It’s an absolutely enormous project for our country, and it has passed all of the government’s regulatory hurdles. It’s hard to understand why the federal government is still humming and hawing about the project. Consider that when an NHL arena is built, an army of workers is involved – from those who survey the site, excavate it, build the structure and furnish it to the accountants and lawyers who help pull the project together. This doesn’t even include the countless companies that make various materials for the facility.
