I say build a community stadium and let the Ti-Cats and their "major corporate sponsors" make up the difference. The PanAm funds are for a lasting amateur athletics legacy for this community. Hamilton's Future Fund is to build our community, especially focussing on a strong and vibrant downtown. It should never have been about the Ti-Cats.

The WH is the logical choice. But if the majority of Hamiltonians want it to be at the IWS site, that's fine with me. But what is NOT fine is that my tax dollars and Hamilton's Future Fund be used to renovate IWS and build a parking lot, and then let any Ti-Cat contribution be for an entertainment precinct that would benefit them and their corporate hangers-on. I cry foul and corruption if that is the plan. And I see nothing to indicate that it is not the plan as there is not a dollar of contribution to the stadium refit committed by the Ti-Cats or their corporate sponsors as yet.
