Wouldn't it be grand for us all if the City would actually get down to business by building the stadium and LRT together, while transforming a neighbourhood! This is unlikely to take place in our life-time.

Here are the negative impacts caused by this unsound decision to spend $150m-$200m on the stadium venture: *Civic apital projects (already on the "list") are now put back at least 5 years *Remediation/revitalization at WH won't happen any time soon *LRT is a pipe-dream that won't happen in Hamilton because council and top city staff have no appetite for it [ie: "oh where will we get the money??"] *Private interest has, once again, dictated bad public policy. Abominable, despicable, and outrageous. I am a glass is half-full person, but this stadium decision has just set Hamilton's renewal back about 15 years.
