I predict the Future Fund will be tapped (drained) to pay the $15 to $20 million dollar short-fall on a permanent 24/7 Valodrome facility. Two locations are in play, the West Harbour, where $10 million has already been spent expropriating property, or building it at the Dundas Driving Park, which is preferred by Russ Powers and other suburban councilors. Staff are due to report back to council at the end of February. So far, not a penny of private sector dollars have been offered, nor by any other cycling groups who will use this facility. If citizens thought the stadium debate was rancorous, the Valodrome debate will be like entering the Twilight Zone. If Future funds aren't used, taxes would have to be raised. No way on earth that will happen.
