Although there is talk of building a performing arts centre, the debt-ridden ripoff known as the John Labatt Centre continues to cost Londoners, including people like myself who refuse to set foot into the monstrosity. Unless you are into hockey hair and the retro circut, there isn't much to see.
So what does council propose to do about the $4.5 million annual cost to taxpayers? Rather than taking it out of the pockets of the asses who voted to build it, the board of control has decided to build a small surcharge into the price of tickets ordered online. It is estimated that this will raise about $200,000. I am all for the people who actually use the facility paying for it, but what's $200,000 when you are looking at a debt that amounts to millions?
Online ticket buyers could be dinged an extra dollar for tickets to make London's John Labatt Centre more profitable.You got that right Sauer - it's all about bread and circuses.
