And councilors, who, I believe, were voted in by the citizens at large, not just RTH, have supported WH seven times.

It does matter what was said last year because we were told that there was no chance that BY would leave the 'Cats at Ivor Wynne. We were also told that they would never play at WH.

Now BY is willing to talk about Ivor Wynne. Are you seriously telling me that if the only option for him was to play at WH or fold the team he'd fold the team? I, for one, don't believe it for a second.

He made a play at the last minute to maximize his revenue from the deal but it hasn't worked. If you could kindly explain to me why taxpayer money should be funneled to maximizing Bob Young's profit I'd love to hear it.

My stance has always been that if taxpayer money is involved, it should benefit the most people it can. Cleaning up a brownfield and encouraging development in an area that badly needs it is a perfect use of that money. Putting a stadium somewhere that Bob can own everything around it isn't.

Seems pretty cut and dry to me.
