5-7,000 as HostCo funding allows, but make it expandable to CFL Grey Cup specs for when Bob Young comes around, or for when he sells the team to someone with an interest in working with the city.

Moreover, it's possible, even probable, that this has been Bob Young's back-up plan all along.

This way, the city doesn't spend any public money capitulating to a party unwilling to negotiate, they remediate an existing brownfield, they attain some much-coveted Pan-Am visibility, and they have a set-in-stone location for which current or future CFL-Ticats team owners can negotiate a workable revenue arrangement with the city.

Given what's transpired, and weighing the pros and cons of all of the location options currently on the table, I can't see any other way. Amidst all the commotion, this seems to me the calmest, most rational and safest means of negotiating the city's stadium quandary.
