There's an article in the Spec today saying the ticats would consider Aldershot for the stadium. The location is where that old cold storage facility used to be that was taken down recently.

Bob Young also says there was a prospective $25 million naming rights deal for another location (presumably confederation park) that wouldn't go through for the harbour location. With more exposure on TSN than the QEW I wonder if the sponsor is planning correctly?

As for Bratina, seems to me he's still angling for the Macdonald school downtown location.

The harbour location is still best, for all the reasons mentioned above and more. One reason I haven't heard is that it will keep visitors off the skyway. People will have to take York, Main, King, LRT etc. into West Hamilton and see how great things are down here. If things are properly developed with LRT and harbour connections it simply gets the most bang for the buck.

I don't speak for the Strathcona neighbouhood (which borders the harbour location) but the word on the street is PIMBY. Please in my back yard!
