Quebec Dir for the Canadian Taxpayers Federation Renaud Brossard said that a recent ad paid for by his organization wanted "to send a clear message to the Rays: that Quebec taxpayers are against any kind of subsidies to build a stadium in Montreal for a part-time, or even full-time, Rays team," according to Colleen Wright of the TAMPA BAY TIMES. Every minute or so, “Dear Rays, Montreal won’t pay for your new stadium. Sincerely, Taxpayers” lights up on a billboard just west of Tropicana Field. Broussard said that billionaire Stephen Bronfman's group wants "a new stadium, as they are not interested in using the Olympic Stadium in Montreal." Brossard added that his organization has not "reached out to the Rays." Brossard said that it is "not clear how much public money Bronfman’s group is seeking or what the burden would be on taxpayers." He added that "transparency" is "another problem clouding the project." Brossard: "It’s all being negotiated behind closed doors, and that’s one of our issues." St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman had "no comment with respect to the billboard." He said that he "intends to make a decision on a Tropicana Field development plan soon," and “he appreciates everyone’s patience." It is "an important decision" (TAMPA BAY TIMES, 10/26).
