Yeah.

I'm looking at the document from yesterday.

The Velodrome Advisory Committee was initiated in September of 2010. 23 sites were originally examined.

The 'leaders' were eventually ranked:

1) Mohawk Sports Park 2) Olympic Sports Park 3) T.B. McQuesten Park 4) West Harbour.

Mohawk was endorsed on January 7th. (What was the official Council stance at this point? West Harbour?)

On May 26th, the Advisory Committee unanimously passed a new motion, 'The Hamilton Velodrome Advisory Committee supports the direction to partner with Mohawk College as the preferred site for the Hamilton Velodrome.'

So I'm wondering, Ryan, if you've asked any of the Councillors on the Advisory Committee a) if any of their colleagues were told of the Committee's actions/decisions over the near-year it was active, b) if so, why was all this such a surprise to everyone, and c) if the information wasn't shared along the way, why not?
