@Zephyr

I'm not shocked about the awesomeness that is "North of Barton" -- I live there too, and my house is smaller than I'd like, but it's a pretty awesome house that my family has made into a home and has been standing for a hundred years and will likely be standing long after the row house (minimum code standard) we inhabited in Mississauga has fallen down.

So - assuming that the "adults" who inhabit council negotiate and get the best of both worlds... a renovated IWS which has money from Toronto2015 and the TiCats covering more than $0 and Future Fund money to remediate the WH site to "you can build houses and live/work buildings in the style of the rest of North Hamilton" which I would argue shouldn't be higher than that of the stadium level remediation -- ie: they only have to clean it up to the level of the rest of residential Hamilton, not to the 'standard', unless they want to clean up my backyard too :) -- do we have a win/win/win/win for everyone?

Or do we (as someone else said) believe in something so hard and fight to keep The One True Vision for so long that we're left with none of the above?
