|Bos, Neil||Maybe||If my home backed onto the Chedoke public golf course I would be furious - and against the stadium being placed on the CP Rail Yards - but luckily my home is up on the escarpment and council is unlikely to select Waterdown for a Pan Am/Ticat stadium.
Has anybody thought of building the stadium in Cootes Paradise? It was the town dump for a couple of hundred years - and now it's a breeding ground for the invasive carp. We can still honor our commitment to the botanicals. In fact we might be able to help their cause with a football stadium a la Venice.
You also might find that US Steel is prepared to open up some of Stelco's old brownfields for the stadium. US Steel might be planning to let the furnaces go cold anyway.
|Gaspar, Brian||Maybe||I am excited and enthusiastic but we need the right plan to make this all come together. My only concerns are no burden to taxpayers the capacity of the stadium and I hope we make architectural allowances for expansion and a roof over our heads.
The payback on such a venture should not surpass five years, providing we keep a yearly calendar of great events that's for the "raising of the roof come on Hamilton lets bring it on."
