.a 7,000 car parking lot with everyone coming out at once would be far more congested than parking lots spread out. That's why even in a sellout at the current stadium its relatively easy leaving. There also is alot more parking downtown near the harbor than at ivor wynne. If the stadium was to be on the east mountain you are pretty much forced to park at that parking lot for $15-20 with no real choice. Jim Basillie wanted a hockey team downtown had no real concerns about parking for something that would draw around 19,000 per game..a few thousand more for 9 dates(football) (compared to 40 dates -hockey)..only a few blocks away..its a myth. Thousands of people manage to get to the acc and rogers with parking spread out all over in a much larger city...
