Thanks for the interview, Ryan. It is very clear from his comments that Mayor Eisenberger is frustrated with both the underhanded tactics of the Tigercats and the ease with which our City Councillors are seduced by the promise of money and the prospect of construction contracts to developers.

I hope the Mayor is able to maintain his commitment to limit the City's contribution to $60 million and can convince Council to do the same. As he suggests in the interview, I will make my opposition to the new site known to my councillor. Sadly, however, observations from past developments suggest the effort will be futile, given that the majority of our civic politicians seem more inclined to hear the voices, not of ordinary constituents, but rather of those with money, leading me to wonder if 'democratic' is an accurate way to describe our municipal political system.
