Perspective... How about if we had spent 60 million keeping the Siemens gas turbine factory here instead of keeping a spoiled little cap wearing boy here. These were highly skilled workers and their many community contractors that supported them. How about Lakeport leaving, do you think any of those semi-skilled production workers will find something comparable? So the Ti-Cats go, compared to the other manufacturing businesses that have left over the past 15 years does it REALLY matter if Bob takes our team away from us for not taking his orders? Here's another one, there is a very high likelihood that a 8-12 month lockout will occur this year at US Steel (former Stelco) because the workers don't want to give away what they have had for years (not looking for ANY gains). You want to see an economic impact on this city, that will be the real deal.

Don't waste the 60 million on Barking Bob, let's use it to keep our industry here.
