I am truly impressed with the passion that a segment of the city's population displays for the WH site. If so many people think that the site is such a sure fire winner for the team why do they not form a citizens group and purchase the Tiger-Cats? Community ownership has worked in Saskatchewan. I believe the team could be bought for next to nothing except assuming the acquired debt. Typically CFL teams are not worth any money. If I remember Bob Young bought the team to save it from bankruptcy. Was the purchase price not $1 plus assuming the debt? He has repeatedly called himself the caretaker of the franchise, I bet he would be very willing to hand the team off to a community ownership group. I think the WH site will not be viable for the Ti-Cats on an ongoing basis but I would love to be proven wrong.

If there really are so many people convinced that WH is THE answer there should be no problem raising the money.
