Barney,

Your comments are strong, and make a lot of sense. That location on Dundurn would be a great spot... even though it won't be near GO it will still be along the LRT.

Only problem is.... that lands not available. Thats prime commercial land, as you pretty much described. How much of your taxes dollars are you willing to allow the city to use to purchase it? I couldn't even think of how much more it would cost....

Reuben,

The land behind the innovation park, although downtown, would prove to be just as useful as a stadium by the airport. Directly off the highway, but nothing to do nearby - unless you have the urge for research lol. But its still fairly close to the LRT line......

Afterthought.... anybody ever heard of the "Barton Freeway". I think it was supposed to be part of the perimeter road 50 years ago. Too bad that was never built (in this case). Then we wouldn't have the debate about highway access! It would have been right beside the barton-tiffany site (or directly on it....lol)
