I don't know about anyone else but I down voted you because you're comment was rediculous.

"A stadium creates jobs.... construction, hotel, stadium jobs, any other spinoff business."

These are not good paying jobs. Construction is only short-term while the stadium is being made -- and why not provide construction jobs making something we actually need?? -- and the other jobs are low paying.

"I'll bet most of the people from the Spec poll are WH supporters being sore losers. Because most would rather see no stadium if not at the WH"

I would rather see no stadium if not at the WH and it's not because I'm s "sore loser" it's because I never saw the stadium as anything more than a way to get fed/prov money to clean up the WH. As just a football stadium it's NOT worth $60 million of our Future Fund, it's only worth it if it has a bigger city benefit.

"Poverty worsened or stayed the same, on Fred's watch."

Nope poverty actually improved slightly based on vital signs, even though we were in a big recession.

"It'll get spent somewhere if not in Hamilton"

Yeah, like on an LRT system that we actually NEED and would actually USE.
