This is all very sweet, and I won't nit-pick except to say that it confirms to me that the ideal place for a new Hamilton stadium is on top of the city waste-storage tank and CP rail line behind the Dundurn Fortinos, building an enclosed GO station beneath the seating. Seating might also extend over the Dundurn Fortinos plaza. On the other side, seating might extend over the proposed new 403 ramp.

Bit of a pipe-dream of course, but then Hamilton is also touting itself as a transportation hub engaging major rail, air, road, water routes in South Ont. Wouldn't a public, crowd-gathering facility at this location showcase civic smarts in this capacity, bridging road, rail and public transit routes? Potential parking space by Frid St., with a walkway under Main could only enhance the development of the industrial parklands there, and minimize interference with nearby residential communities.

And nice views up and down the Chedoke Valley.
