This was the very first question and response:

11:03 [Comment From Nic Nic : ] How has amateur sport benefited from all this ? The only tanganble seems to be the removal of Brian Timmins stadium for a parking lot .. Where is the benefit ? Will the 'new' Ivor Wynne be available to users of Brian Timmins for a reduced cost or should they look to Oakville or some other out of town destination ?

11:06 BB: Thanks for the question. First of all, not to be nitpicky, the stadium was named after the famous Brian Timmis, not the northern Ontario town. The benefit will come in large part with the introduction of soccer and related training and game opportunities on a FIFA approved soccer surface. I can't speak to costing right now, but rest assured that more soccer fields are in our future, not less.
