I must say, I still share a lot of doubt that a stadium of any sort is really necessary. The West Harbour neighbourhood has already been through extensive planning (Setting Sail) and no pressing need for a stadium was ever identified.

I do find it kinda ironic, though, that after the stadium plans have gone around and around, that the Velodrome idea is still going strong. It's inspiring, though. I don't know that I've heard a single cyclist I know say that they wouldn't love to see one, or that downtown would be a bad place for it (much better than the East Mountain or Aldershot). Even the idea of a smaller stadium which got more use from public sports warms my heart. I'm totally in favour of spending public money on things which enable us to PLAY sports, I just don't know that we need to spend any more money helping people watch them.

P.S. Jelly-Drome?
