I would note we already have Ivor Wynne on the books, so that's not new allocation.

It's all going into the city's existing property value, to create more taxes, which was the goal.

By 2016, there will have been a quarter of a $ billion spent in an area of Hamilton that otherwise would not expect an extra dime in that time..
The impact will be enormous, as no other use for the Future Funds could bring in 5x in additional cash to the pot.

IMHO, It's about landing the US Senate pork-size stimulus right here, in the heart of our tax-hole. Instead of being a draw on our city books, it will all add to them... Land value taxes, income taxes, sales taxes.
