A couple points I'd like to add. Brian Timmins Stadium which if you don't know is on the south side of IW, can seat around 5000. Brian Timmins is home field to several local soccer clubs (Hamilton Croatia being one) and used to be home field for the Hamilton Hurricanes junior football team and a womens semi-pro soccer team whose name escapes me. My point being, we don't need to look very hard to justify a modern 6000 seat facility in our community, Brian Timmins is on par with 'Kevin Costners, Field of Dreams' for seating technology, and about as welcoming as Barton Street Jailyard with it's 8 foot compound fencing.
Also we have already spent 8.3 million on the WH lands, those monies and any costs for remediation would be deducted from the local taxpayers share of financing. Based on the #'s we have seen we're probably going to be on the hook for $10 million or less.
