'serious discussions with the city'??
No, Larry DiIanni was desperate to get something, anything, built near the highway and tried coaxing them into coming. Once the story went public, there were many in this city who wanted assurances of all these so-called 'new jobs' and grand expansion from Maple Leaf. They were never able to give it. I know you didn't read this in the Spec back then, but many of us weren't surprised at all when they announced that the plant would be closing very shortly after the 'apparent' Hamilton deal was cancelled. We expected it and had heard rumblings of it from folks inside the plant. Don't get mad at me. Get mad at your daily paper for never giving the facts. If local JoeBlow citizens all over town were concerned about the legitimacy of their actual will to build a new plant, surely someone who spends 8 hours a day as a 'journalist' could have stumbled across that info too.
