The Mayor is not the one who has made this adversarial. Bob Young is the one to blame here. Throughout the whole process he has been saying that he would work with whatever the city decides. Now at the last minute, two weeks before the deadline he decides to let the city know that the site is not acceptable.

Personally I think it's a ploy on the part of Bob Young to get a sweetheart deal with the city, much like he has now for IWS. He knows that with a new stadium he is actually going to have to pay rent.

In order to change locations now the city is going to have to start the process all over again. That means they are going to have to try and unload the properties they have already bought in the West Harbour at a loss more than likely. That alone wouldn't go over very well with taxpayer. Besides that in order to change the decision a 2/3 vote of council would be needed. That is not likely to happen.
