Robert D: Ok so we build a stadium and most are saying the economic development will be shops and stores and bars and restaurants. The fact is that many of these jobs are usually low paying, minimum wage jobs that offer no benefits to the workers, so just how is this making it better for the citizens if they are still left struggling?

You failed to address this in your previous post or does it really matter to you per se, if others are left struggling while those at the top are making the money?

Who cares about the Olympics, I don't, I don't even watch the fiasco. It is the playground of the rich, the corporations and not of the people.

Since Hamilton has over 100,000 people struggling now and with the downturn in the economy, that number is going to grow and this is the best path that our leaders can come up with? A misuse of taxpayer funds where we see the system that penalizes those at the bottom, think of the grandparents of ROCK for one, can't use taxpayers funds to help those at the bottom, yet it's ok to use taxpayer funds to build a stadium for a week of games???

There are many people out there who are opposed to this but then if it was a really a democracy every person would be given the chance to vote.
