EDMONTON - City council should give final approval to the downtown arena next week and find the remaining $69 million in financing later, a new city report recommended Thursday.

But one councillor who has consistently backed the project said he can’t go along with this latest funding proposal, and thinks the deal could be dead.

“It will be an unfortunate thing to do, but it might come to that, that we might not be able to proceed with the downtown arena,” Coun. Amarjeet Sohi said.

“Not getting a commitment from the province at this time, up to the writing of the report, I don’t see how we will proceed with it.”
