Capitalist, you may be unaware that when Ivor Wynne was built - 80 years ago - it was constructed on the outside of town. Much of the development that occured east of that area followed. It has now outlived its usefulness by 30 years.
You are probably too young to remember what York Blvd. looked like prior to the construction of Copps Colliseum. It wasn't pretty. But how much revenue does the City generate when there is a major event at Copps - whether the Canada Cup, big concert or convention? Yes, Copps isn't utilized as much as it could/should but to suggest there is no spin off just makes my head spin.
