It's pretty clear what Bob Young's advisers told him (and why we're putting stock in people he's paying is beyond me). There is a few million dollars a year of extra revenues they feel they can make from a site like the East Mountain, with giant paved $20/spot parking farms, retail developments and highway-side naming rights. A site like the West Harbour wouldn't allow the Ti-Cats a stranglehold over stadium-related development.

A West Harbour site wouldn't cost him anything, it just wouldn't give him quite as much for free. He's not entitled to any of these benefits in the first place, and never was.

I hear a lot of griping these days about "welfare bums" and their sense of entitlement. Well, the kind of corporate welfare is the equivalent of tens of thousands of those monthly cheques. And Bob Young was already fabulously wealthy.
