Never forget that Clark is a Harris Tory.

The one underlying, common thread of that government was that its actions always had the effect of putting more money in the hands of fewer people; eliminating rent control, reducing income tax for the rich, slashing welfare rates for those who couldn't or didn't work and freezing minimum wage for those who could and did, to mention but a few.

The West Harbour versus Bob Young and/or the Paletta's is a reflection of that age old "some for all versus all for some" struggle. Do we use public money to build a public stadium on public land in a working class area of town that will be accessable to everyone and will draw people to our waterfront and the numerous small businesses in the area or do we take that same money and basically give it to two multi-millionaires so they can build an essentially private, car-centric, restricted access, personal cashbox where all the "spinoffs" spin off to those same multi-millionaires?

The only way that Clark can help the latter happen is to turn down the Pan-Am games and the money, our money, that comes with them.
