I don't think anyone is saying that we should have highway access for a stadium. My point is that the harbourlands are a stones throw from the 403 and will have great downtown transit links.

It's far superior a location in terms of moving cars in and out than Ivor Wynne. Keep in mind, we are talking 25,000 , not 65,000 or 80,000.

Folks coming from the east can take Burlington Street and Wellington to Cannon and the stadium site. Folks from the Mountain, Burlington and points NW can use the 403 to York or Main.

It's easier to navigate than Ivor Wynne in the middle of the city and yet still redevelops a brownfield and helps to spur some waterfront/downtown revitalization. No location is perfect, but of our options the west harbour is the top of the list in my mind.
