Saputo wants city to subsidize his stadium

Here we go: Joey Saputo wants tax breaks on Saputo Stadium as his soccer tickets become ever more expensive. Saputo held a presser Friday to talk about how he’d spent all this money on the team, although as I recall a) he did it voluntarily and b) he pushed the Impact into the major league, and enlarged the stadium, before it had a fan base big enough to justify this.

And now he wants public money to keep it all going.

Interestingly, the one thing not mentioned in the item is Saputo’s situation after the USMCA trade deal. Seems to me if Saputo gets cheaper milk, his cheese profits are bound to go up. So crying poor mouth to the city is poorly timed, no?
