Policy Guy:"Not only were they shot down in this forum, they were shot down by the council who have been consistent in their refusal to cave into extortion."

In fact Council agreed to spend most of the future fund monies in the West Harbour to build a stadium for the Ticats and the city. They were going to spend the same on the CPR site. So, it's not extortion if it's built in those locations but it is extortion if it is built elsewhere. Check out your logic Policy Guy. It's faulty. In fact read today's Globe on this issue. The columnist presents a very balanced point of view, making some of your points but balancing them with a considerable predicament for the city.

My point is this; and I think Trey's point is also this: we should have explored ALL sites, including those liked by the only tenant we have. To close our eyes to the obvious, to shut our ears to the logical, to purse our lips when truth needs to be uttered is uber-insane. It is the see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil equivalent of folly and delusion.

And by the way, the Future Fund money being 'ours' is absolutely true. It belongs to those Hamiltonians who are customers of our hydro utility, including people in Flamborough, Stoney Creek, Ancaster and Glanbrook, not just those living downtown.
