The arts are important and Hamilton Place and the Studio Theatre, part of HECFI and our tax money, are very nice and plush. IWS is not very nice and not very plush. Copps for the Bulldogs, a team that averages about 3000 or so a game and rarely gets on national TV, plays in a plush arena they didn't have to pay a dime to play in. It's interesting that a nice arts-based amphitheatre was proposed for the WH site but was rejected. Again, this would have added to arts facilities in Hamilton.

Also, if Hamilton is able to host Grey Cups, and this will require a new stadium, Hamilton's arts scene can be showcased during a pre or halftime event at the game, on national television to millions of Canadians. Forget bringing in a group from outside of Hamilton, we have many fine musical groups right here in Hamilton and the theatre people could do a performance of some sort showcasing whatever, dancing with costumes that might reflect some aspect of Hamilton in pioneer days or what have you. It could be a wonderful celebration of Hamilton.
