By Ms Me...I get what you are saying, and it's a shame that it all went down the way it did. I did see the original proposal back in November though, I thought it was going to go forward from there..I feel you may be right. Speaking as a citizen of Hamilton, not the ward necessarily, I felt overall it would be good for the city, and now thinking more on it..Gage Park, possibly as that park always hosted musical events, but again it is too late. I have been reading links to other press articles written outside of the city of Hamilton, and I believe more than ever now, that it would have been really great for our city. Those articles seem to be more focused on the backlash that stopped the project, mostly citing it as a shame, and much less on the controversy surrounding Frank's personal life. It's sad that outside of our city, people are focused on the musician, get past the personal (and again I say are not necessarily what they seem) and seem to know more about the musical related contributions that he and the entire band actually did. I am afraid these articles make us a city look foolish. I say to those who didn't know him, and did not want to support it because of that fact, it appears a whole country did.
