If Fred has tenants for the west end, why haven't they come forward with $$$? Where's the cycling clubs lining up to support the Velodrome in the west end? Where's the paying soccer clubs willing to put their money where their mouths are for the west end? Why doesn't Raise the Hammer ask Mayor Fred these questions? He was at the west end rally in Hess village, where's the transcript of his and Bob Bratina's speeches, Bratina said the west end historical maps show this area was a filled in swamp and geologically unstable, where's that report the city promised? It hasn't even been done yet, for some strange reason. City hall has preferred this site since the 2003 Commowealth games bid, why hasn't deep core sampling been done? The west end site is contaminated with huge amounts of coal-tar, just like Randall Reef, a toxic disaster city hall refuses to remediate, despite federal and provincial funding already committed. Hamilton dropped the ball again. Hamilton council has more failures than wins, even when a win is handed to them on a silver platter, they manage to find a way to screw it up royally. That's Hamilton, get used to it or vote. That's democracy in action, unlike the latest twists and turns.
