Even I'm surprised by this. This location is further away than anything else yet suggested, except possibly the airport. Even the airport location had the promise of some kind of higher order transit, at some point in time.

I'm appalled at the use of the phrase 'driveway to driveway experience' in promoting this stadium concept. Isn't that exactly what we're trying to get away from? The idea that fans shouldn't leave their cars until they're in an isolated stadium site completely undermines the economic spinoff component to this project, save for perhaps a few gas stations and drive thrus in the area.

And what good is a 'business' case that assumes the bulk of the investment will come from the city and higher govenment while the only profit that seems to matter is that of the Tiger Cats? What about the City's profit that it expects in the form of investment? It's not a business case at all, it's a charity case.
