He never once says 'if we had a year round facility in Hamilton we could switch our training the new velodrome and pay an amount equal to what the americans are paid per year for the velodrome.

He made this very statement at the GIC meeting. Clearly, succinctly, without reservation. There were all manner of aspects of economic benefits, such as National Team managers, coaches, technicians as well as riders moving to the area.

This email wasn't intended primarily for 'public consumption'. It was a response by a Hamiltonian for more information. So please don't take what isn't there as being indicators of anything except...the fact that it's not there. Nothing else.

Here's what I suggest: Get in touch with your Councillor. Ask for a fact sheet or summary of how they're making the decision on whether or not to go ahead with the Mohawk collaboration. (While you're at it, ask them what their feelings are about West Harbour still being Council's choice of locale for the facility.) I'm sure that the point you raised will be front-and-centre, and that even those charged with making the final decision will be conversant in such basic information.
