The stadium location is far easier to access by car than Bayfront Park. Plus, over 100,000 people come out to the July 1 fireworks.
I'm a huge fan of neighbourhood planning but there needs to be a lot more common sense when figuring out where the money will come from to cleanup this land.
The waterfront has been cleaned up with public money and all of us have a right to enjoy it. Local residents surely benefit more than the rest of us due to enhanced views, amenities and home values, but that doesn't mean they can gate the north end for their use only.
If it's fine for someone to buy a harbourfront home and demolish it in order to build their waterfront dream home, surely it's fine for the city to demolish a gross brownfield site and build a wonderful waterfront precinct for thousands of other Hamiltonians who would love to live, dine, shop and be entertained by our beautiful harbour.
