I have a hard time arguing with Bratina about this actually. To my mind, he's been consistent throughout the process - he wants the stadium to be in the lower city of Hamilton, but isn't fond of the West Harbour. He wants to keep more lower-city locations on the table, incl. MIP and Confed. park (which is underrated as an option - taking part of that gigantic park is better than consuming employment lands, it could share parking with WWW... but it is kind of cut off from the city and has poor transit support). I still think knocking down Sir John. A is a terrible idea, though.

When the choice was between the West Harbour and other lower-city locations, he was pushing for those. When the choice became West Harbour vs. East Mountain, he supported the West Harbour because to him, keeping the stadium in the lower city is important. He's been consistent - he wants a downtown location, and is displeased with how quickly West Harbour pushed out all the other lower-city options. Every vote he's made has followed this logic.

But Fred's still got my vote.
