From our past discussions, I know that you and the Tiger-Cats share our city's commitment to its responsibilities to choose a site that is fiscally responsible, that will leave a worthy legacy for the community, will contribute to our "city building" initiatives

Those discussions must have been both highly secretive and extraordinarily convincing, because neither Bob Young's public commentary nor his recent actions indicate that he is committed to Hamilton's city building initiatives.

A sprawl stadium in a low-density area surrounded by parking lots and virtually inaccessible by public transit is not a city building initiative.

I bet the big box store and chain restaurant owners in the area are thrilled by this proposal. Of course, all of the people who run businesses and restaurants and bars downtown, where it really matters to the city, are going to be left out in the cold if this is the selected location.
