'The Tiger-Cats' ownership has clearly abandoned 'The City of Hamilton.'...and to quote the author..."the glaring reality is that their involvement in the current stadium planning process has taken us so far of course that it is better to forge ahead without them then to fumble the whole opportunity for Hamilton."
With a Feb. 1st deadline looming our City Council needs to take possession of the stadium funding. Aldershot is no longer a part of Hamilton and we as citizens will be outraged when we are asked to take ownership or subsidize what must be a 'City owned' stadium to receive Hostco funding.
Confederation Park would seem to be viable, but with serious enviromental and traffic logistic issues and more importantly a looming deadline it's not doable without assuming a sizable risk.
A scalable stadium on a approved site at the 'West Harbour' seems to be the only option where we can secure some funding and put an end to the aspirations of the Toronto suburbs.
As of Feb. 2nd the biggest question will be the size of the Pan Am stadium.
