Sorry to burst your bubbles on a temporary site, but the terms for funding a stadium were clear. It must be permanent and it must have future use for the legacy partner, the Tiger-Cats. If they can't come to an agreement, then the stadium doesn't get built. A temporary facility is out of the question.

Bob Young needs to see people who will buy into the West Harbour plan and the Whitestar Group can be the catalysts. Their concept is the best one I've seen. If they can get some private money into this venture and if they can get some help in telling CN to back off, this could be something sustainable.

A stadium with a retractable roof for this city is a dream come true with some greater revenue potential than the East Mountain stadium. But the biggest problem continues to be accessibility. The East Mountain would have the parkway, but short of the train station and a possible LRT station, what would the West Harbour have as a high volume artery that is as close?
