It may be a win win situation for the city of Hamilton. We keep the team, and according to Scott Mitchell, they will still be called the Hamilton Tiger Cats. We save the future fund money for other purposes. We still participate as a host for Pan Am events.

But there are still many unanswered questions about how this is all going to transpire. According to an article posted on the Spectator website tonight, Burlington will get $100 million for the stadium from Hostco while investing only $10 million of their own money. Why is it that the city of Hamilton would only get $56 million from Hostco with an investment of $45 million.

Something just doesn't seem right about this. It sounds to me like the city of Hamilton is getting screwed again. As usual it's one set of rules for the city of Hamilton and a completely different set for everyone else. Someone needs to investigate this discrepency and find out why there is such a huge difference in funding between what this city would get and what will be given to Burlington.
