@MrJanitor - The Ti-Cats will stay Hamiltonian, but that Burlington Hwy/GO address for a venue will service Halton with hundreds of events each year-- Not just sports, everything from concerts to car shows... This will even be good for Oakville and Milton too.

@Robert D - Well, no but, essentially yes; the $ has changed. As @bigguy1231 points out, The Spec reports the new numbers as:

$140-million, 22,000-seat Aldershot stadium

• $100 million from federal and provincial governments through Hostco

• $30 million from private sector

• Donation of land from Paletta International

• $10-million funding gap

And that gap is about naming-rights and two concession deals away from closed.

@bigguy1231 - Oh, I know, eh? The gov loves Halton the way it loved Peel when I was a kid. And that worked out so well...
