According to Troop, the City and TO2015 considered a number of possible sites and Mohawk came up as a serious site consideration in late spring.


With all due respect to Mr. Troop, the document I received at yesterday's GIC meeting clearly states that on January 7th of this year, 'The Velodrome Advisory Committee collectively endorsed Mohawk Sports Park as the preferred velodrome site, with Olympic Sports Park and T.B. McQuesten Park as alternative options for Council to consider.'

(Yes, that's right: no mention of West Harbour.)

My question to Ryan...through to Mr. Powers or any of the other three Councillors on this Advisory Committee: Was anyone on Council made privy to the ongoing movement towards Mohawk from last October to the 'vote' on May 26th by this committee?

If so, who?

If not, why not?

This isn't so much a 'procedural' issue as it is one of common sense and transparency.

I can't believe that intelligent people don't 'get' how this erodes confidence in people. (Read that as: Hamiltonians. Their constituents...and their bosses.)
