Art budget for Ottawa’s Lansdowne Park = $3 million?

So, it seems that the sticker price for renovating Lansdowne Park & Civic Centre will be about $300 million, including interest charges borne by the City over the next 40 years to finance the deal. The City of Ottawa requires that 1% of development funds be reserved for art projects to enhance the look of the site. I wonder what that $3 million would buy? Perhaps a nice after-market Henry Moore sculpture? (or instead, perhaps it will be a large steel moose wearing Ottawa “Roughriders” gear?!) I wonder who gets to make these decisions…
