Personally, I am not all that upset about losing the velodrome. It's a great thing, don't get me wrong - after the glitter has faded, I just can't see more than a handful of people - with respect to our population density - using it for its intended purpose. Tradeshows, etc are great - but Copps is already underused as it is. The velodrome might spread us a little thinner and perhaps not create the dynamics for igniting the use cases that a facility of this magnitude deserves.

Out of all of this, West Harbour revitalization was the key. The velodrome was a nice addition, but with nothing left but a save-face stadium in the same location, I don't see the point in being involved in the PanAm games going forward.

Educate me if I'm off-base.
