WH was the only site with real support that will bring good things to the surrounding community.

Personally I agree with Bratina that a "true downtown" site would be even better, but WH had some synergy with the harbourfront development and north end revitalization, the Rheem site (which needs to be cleared either way and a stadium provides the impetus to do it), and the new Go station (which I think is being overstated).

That's why McHattie and the mayor stick to it. I agree with Bratina that other sites like Confed. park shouldn't have been taken off the table so quickly, but on analysis it looks like WH really was the best option.

I mean, EM would probably be the best place for Bob Young to do business... but it wouldn't be the best for Hamilton, and so Hamiltonians shouldn't be paying for that.
