So what happens exactly today? Is there a vote on the CP railyards site that is tied in with what the TigerCats are offering? If council votes no, does this mean no Pan Ams for Hamilton? And if they vote yes, then HOSTCO does award the stadium but the federal government won't comment on further funding until Feb. 1 2011? It is confusing that much I will say.

Scott Mitchell won't be impressed by my presentation.

Wow. Someone needs to tell Mitchell that there are development companies on the planet who know how to do stuff other than big box stores. He says there is no public money for this site because it lacks development opportunities. Since when is 35-40 acres of urban land, next to a highway, with transit, in the middle of a city considered poor for urban development??

I guess when your dream of 'development' is to have big warehouses surrounded by fake penguins this site may not cut it.

I'm disappointed with the council and tired of the Tiger-Cats. Time to get rid of the lot of them.

West Harbour is officially DEAD!!!!!!!
I feel bad for the people who live in the longwood area that will now be expropriated because of this stupid stadium crap when it should have gone to confederation park in the first place.

Scott Mitchell's and Gary May's presentation was weak. But it is to be expected as the didn't really have anything to say. Props to Mchattie and Murella for holding their line.
