Eugene Melnyk made the following statement today on the
City of Ottawa Committee of Council stadium vote:

Our Proposal - Forward Looking
"When I bought the Senators in 2003, I made a decision that
this was the city I would call my heart's home in Canada. I have
spent a lot of valued time here, our organization has supported
many great causes and we have brought world-class events to the
city. This is the city in which I would like to focus my economic
development and investment plans for years to come. I was looking forward into the future back in 2003, and our proposal for a Major League Soccer franchise and new open-air stadium is a forward-looking proposal now."
