Someone asked what happens if there are two events at the same time? Copps and W.Harbour? I think we'll survive, here's why...

As I mentioned previously, in Vancouver BC Place (~50,000 seats) and GM Place (~20,000 seats) sometimes let out at the same time due to a football and concert, or football and hockey, or concert and hockey. The surrounding area has similar levels of surface roads as West Harbour and no highway access for 7 whole km's. With the exception of the few who decide to pick foolish routes, the massive crowd adds at most 15 minutes to a trip to the suburbs. I've done this trip to the eastern Vancouver suburbs literally hundreds of times, as I was a season ticket holder.

With the 403 so close to downtown and the green-wave thing, it doesn't surprise me at all that the number of fans doesn't bring a significant slowdown to downtown Hamilton.
