I am not happy with the Pan Am games, as I feel that these dollars for an elite event, could go to other things that are much more needed. I mean we have people starving in our streets.

The area, the west harbor site, is an industrial waste land, which does need to be revamped, so I guess I do not really understand Mr Bratinas stance, that greenfield areas are better. Better for whom, not Mother Nature, when are covering up land with concrete and pavement, which starves the life systems such as water, which we all need and the fact that this land could be used to grow food, to feed those in our city that are starving.

Should we not be putting focus on cleaning up all these contaminated spots instead of destroying greenfields.
