@mrjanitor -- I don't think that you know that my motive is to purposefully create confusion in this discussion -- I can assure you that it is not.

I've been speaking of a 6,000 seat community stadium for the WH the entire time. I don't believe in using public money to build a stadium to benefit a private business, when said private business is contributing no funds whatsoever. AND said private business is already a corporate welfare recipient.

I think we should use this rare opportunity for fed/prov investment dollars into our city to build a more sustainable and visionary legacy for this community than an IWS renovation. If we build a scalable 6,000 seat stadium and the Ti-Cats can come up with a plan to bridge the financial gap through their own money/corporate sponsors, that is the time to talk to them. Until then we should proceed with leveraging the fed/prov tax dollars to build a community stadium/velodrome.
