There have been reports about how much the coliseum costs per year to keep it in its present state.
Does anyone know what yearly costs are for the power plant and what the city has spent thus far on it?
Given the amount of archeological work already done in the area and the site location I really doubt there will be remains. The power plant goes ~4 stories under ground. And there are catwalks & other infrastructure that expands past it under ground as well. This is the part I really don't understand with all the uproar. Between the power plant building itself, what it must have required in terms of excavation to build it & the extensive archeological work done in the area (24 historic resource impact assessments) I think the Indigenous archeologist knows what he's talking about re: likelihood.They could build the gondola station inside or on top of the power plant eliminating any worries about disturbing the bodies.
I feel that enough commemoration (plaques, ceremonial grounds etc.) has been given to the burial ground to consider the debate resolved.
We shouldn't be worrying about unknown bodies lying all over the place otherwise we will be freaking out about everyone that died since the ice age.
It's too bad. This would have been a awesome project at least from my perspective and counter to councilor Knack's comments I think this does again spook groups from taking a chance. It's a complicated situation but I wish council could at least give some clear expectations of exactly what they want from the group that would allow them to comfortably support or make a decision. Killing this without giving clear next steps doesn't seem fair.
