Unfortunately, Mayor Fred doesn't have any paying tenants lined up to use a 15,000 seat soccer/football stadium in the west end since track and field events were moved to Toronto. Troop will make a decision that is best for the Pan-Am games. After all is said and done there will be an election, vote accordingly. For a group that doesn't even want a stadium, your efforts have done more for the east mountain than you can imagine. To claim this flip-flopping by local Liberals was caused by your group is laughable, but quite entertaining. At least the Tiger-Cats won last night. 26,000 people attended and the game was exciting, if that's what you are into. HostCo calls the shots and is waiting for council to make the right decision for the good of the Pan-Am games. One site has a tenant willing to invest $15 million and carry the costs going forward for 10 to 25 years, the west harbour has not a single paying tenant lined up with cash in hand, nor do they have a business plan to give to Troop, as required. Instead of showing the public his business plan for the west end, Mayor Fred hollowly demands this of the Tiger-Cats, to deflect attention away from his lack of one. Let the down-voting begin, it's how this organization treats poster with an oppposing view no matter how sound and factual it is. That's Raise the Hammer, get used to it.
