The Calgary Herald has the story.

A day after an exclusive Postmedia/Mainstreet Research survey found some are feeling pangs of envy as Edmonton’s Rogers Place and Regina’s Mosaic Stadium open their doors, Calgary Sports and Entertainment Company president and CEO Ken King said the numbers only scratch the surface of a project that has many layers, and could ultimately deliver a massive return on investment when all is said and done.

“That once controversial project is now a huge hit. And I think Calgarians are seeing that,” King said.

He noted when Rogers Place was only an idea coming to Edmonton city council, there was significant debate similar to what’s now beginning in Calgary.
