for anyone who cares, this stadium site is a 7 minute shorter drive to King and James than Confederation Park. Both of those sites are closer to downtown Burlington than Hamilton. And let's be honest, transit access to the Aldershot location will be marginally better than Conf Park. At least there are HSR and BT routes that stop at King and Plains. Who knows, maybe someday we'll put all these lanes on York to good use have an LRT line that runs from downtown Hamilton to downtown Burlington.

The GO/VIA stuff is a smokescreen though. Nobody will walk 2.6km beside a highway to get to a stadium from a train station. Most people won't walk 2.6km period.

And let's also be honest that the entire west end of our region, whether CP Railyard, WH or 403/King Rd is a much nicer view of the city and surrounding greenery than Conf Park staring at the smokestacks across the QEW.

The more I think about this idea, the more I like it. NYC hasn't suffered an image problem due to their two NFL teams playing in Jersey. Nevermind just outside a city's boundary, their teams play in a different state! LOL
