Bad DealĀ 
To summarize: -IWS has every negative that the Ticats hated about West Harbour. -This plan involves removing a community soccer stadium and ball diamonds for a parking lot that will be used ten times a year to benefit a private company. -This site perpetuates the image of Hamilton across Canada as a polluted hellhole when seen on TSN. -The price tag for this renovation is somehow more than double the entire construction cost of BMO Field which was a 100% new build. -This plan sucks up the entire Future Fund, while the contaminated brownfield land purchased at the West Harbour sits untouched. -The Ticat's Scott Mitchell has engendered feelings of resentment towards the team in a large portion of the community. -A great opportunity has become a total disaster, how very Hamilton!
