Very good interview Ryan - and Mayor Eisenberger. I, for one, am glad Fred is wearing his frustration on his sleeve, and not voicing meaningless commentary like my own Councillor, Bob Bratina.

Something stinks in this whole process. Michael Fenn has overstepped the terms of reference and forgotten that he was hired as an unbiased facilitator, not as a consultant or worse, an urban planner. How could he feel comfortable directing the flow of this process to the extent he has? Ask Dalton McGuinty. He knows.

We're going to pay the Ontario government for ORC lands, and the province is going to take our money and "give it back to us" through "enlightened" investment in the West Harbour. I can hear Dolton using his oft-repeated "for Ontario families" line as he talks about brownfield remediation, urban intensification, public transit, access to greenspace (waterfront), etc. Everything that a stadium in the West Harbour would have provided and so much more! Nothing of which the ORC lands provide. This is a 70+ year decision and Council, with the exception of Brian McHattie and the Mayor, are lining up like the naive lemmings they are to take us over the cliff. A dark day for Hamilton is on the horizon. That is, unless we can create enough noise at the local AND provincial levels to at least try to stop this madness. Otherwise, it's going to be, "If at first you don't succeed, lower your goals."
