Mark Allan Whittle is correct in stating that debt is a big issue for the city of Hamilton. However pointing out the obvious doesn't help with the about proposing some realistic solutions instead of whingeing.

It's hard to reconcile that concern about the city's debt load with support for the East Mountain location. That location will cost the city $millions more, and require a significant capital expenditure to be debt (as the Future Fund board has said no).

Give Mayor Fred some credit...he's trying to take the brownfield, clean it up and get something useful to the community built there, without running up the city's debt. If it's a stadium fine. If not a stadium, that's OK as well.
