As much as I hate the idea of an East Mountain stadium, I don't think it will necessarily hurt the downtown. The downtown and the waterfront have been on a positive trajectory for a number of years now and that will continue for reasons entirely unrelated to the Pan Am games or the Tiger Cats. Of course a waterfront stadium would only have helped, but even without it residential and retail development will continue as it has been. As exemplified by the comments on this board, there is a building mass of people who appreciate urban living in general and downtown Hamilton specifically, and we will continue to drive the renaissance.

All the progressive people on the board who in despair are planning their departure from this unique but often backwards city should calm down, wait until September and then go to Open Streets Hamilton, then the Locke St. Festival, and remember why you fell in love with this city in the first place.
