What I'm reading here about Brian Timmis Stadium is not what I remember hearing in council chambers. I'm always up for being corrected, so if I'm wrong fire away.

BTS is not being removed specifically for parking, it's being removed to accommodate the footprint of the new stadium. Their has been no specific location assigned as to where the 1500 parking spots will go. The Ti-Cats wanted the $600,000 a year lease payment to be allocated to paying for the land acquisition and construction of a parking lot 'within a reasonable distance to IWS'. I remember Rob Rossini being concerned about finding land close enough for IWS parking that he suggested HSR shuttle buses from Tiger-Cat controlled lot to the stadium. I found the shuttle buses hilarious because whenever I mentioned them for a WH stadium the Bob Young trolls would shout it down saying they would never go in one.

Once again, correct me if I'm wrong but from what I remember BTS is not being removed specifically for parking and there is no site even purchased yet for parking.
