Someone made the great point (can't remember where I saw it) that if the velodrome is such a great thing, and will be so beneficial for Canadian cycling, why aren't the Canadian Olympic Committee and the Feds chipping in? Why are Hamilton taxpayers being asked to shoulder the entire burden when the direct, local benefit is minimal, or at least intangible? I'd be alot more supportive of this thing if the people who are going to derive the most benefit, ie, elite national athletes, were paying at least some of the cost, and if it were located where it would provide the most benefit for the poor saps who are footing the bill, and not just the convenience of cyclists who think the West Harbour is 'icky'.
