As is always the case in Hamilton, when someone proposes a vibrant, urban vision for our downtown or waterfront area, a small collection of antiquated people with various political or business interests insist on treating our city as though it is a 1960s suburb.
If the Ticats think plopping a stadium down beside a highway outside of the core of a city is such a great idea, perhaps they should have put in a bid on the recently-sold Pontiac Silverdome outside of Detroit.
It sold for one percent of what it cost to build. Of course, there is no need for it anymore since both the Lions and Tigers play in new parks in tight urban quarters in the middle of a redeveloping downtown neighbourhood.
Let's let someone else take our Pan Am Stadium until we can drag our city's power brokers out of the '60s and replace them with folks who have vision and a basic understanding of city-building.
