Good question, Ron. Too bad you can't answer it.

Considering a subsidy of a mere $150,000 from the City of St. John's to the Aquarena, councillor Ron Ellsworth is quoted by CBC news as saying:

"It's a regional facility providing a regional service, so why aren't they going to other municipalities and getting this money that's needed?"

So why exactly doesn't Ellsworth take the same attitude to forking out 10 times as much in a direct subsidy, and upwards of 20 times that amount in total outlays for the Money Pit, a.k.a. Mile One?

Ellsworth said his opposition to the Aquarena subsidy is based on a business case.

How about showing the taxpayers the business case, Ron?
