Others are suggesting David Asper has been misleading the public for years.
That's why it's prepared to float a loan to Asper to get it started. And it is under construction as we speak.
Recently, I talked to David Asper who, barring a disaster, will soon be the owner of the Blue Bombers, and who says his real estate firm, Creswin Properties, is going through all the tenders and coming to terms with a final cost. He still believes it will be around $115 million.

If Selinger Says So, Then it Has to Be True Posted onMarch 27, 2010byScott Taylor|2 Comments
Saturday morning, David Asper woke up to the best news he's had since the Winnipeg Football Club accepted his proposal to build a new football stadium in Winnipeg way back in January of 2007.
The Winnipeg Free Press reported that Premier Greg Selinger would make an announcement "in days," guaranteeing that he would "step in to ensure a new home for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers will be built at the University of Manitoba."
As the story unfolded it became apparent that no one in Manitoba, including Asper, knew much of this incredible development but it was clear he was going to be the beneficiary of what appeared to be $85 million in provincial government money - $85 million that had not been written into the provincial budget.
But yesterday, Asper didn't sound too happy.
"I'm not talking about it," Asper snapped, when asked about the new deal.
Still, if this story is true, and I certainly believe it is, Selinger is going to give Asper an $85 million gift while the feds give him $15 million. When Asper gets his new mall operating, he'll get an option to purchase the team. Wow! that IS a new deal. It's not even close to the agreement the Bombers have with Asper. Not even close.

So when media baron and property developer David Asper came forward 14 months ago with an idea to build a new stadium and take over ownership - and fiscal responsibility - from the community board that has run the team for almost 80 years, it seemed like the right thing to do.
Still, Asper has spent the last 14 months doing everything possible to sell his idea to the community. He's run an interactive web site,; he's held open forums, both public and with special interest groups; and he's acquiesced to the demands of federal, provincial and civic politicians.
He has done everything in good faith.
Now I would not have thought anything of that question coming from, say CJOB, a Corus radio station that is and always has done quite well financially, but for CBC to send out its child reporter to suggest that Asper, who is using his own money (not Canwest's money) to build the stadium, would soon go broke and we'd have a helluva mess is patently outrageous.
Still, despite all of its own incompetence, some CBC news producer sent out a little girl with an attitude to suggest Asper was somehow going to fail miserably. Had she only bothered to use Google, she might have learned that Creswin Properties and Canwest Communications are two different companies run by two different people.

In fact, David Asper's dream of building a new football stadium in Winnipeg and, ultimately, taking over control of the city's CFL franchise, is very close to coming true.
