Excellent letter. I sent something similar to my councillor the day after the Ticat proposal was put forward.

When I first saw the headline of the original article in the Spec, I thought great the Cats are going to actually contribute something to the stadium. But then they broke it down. It's nothing more than smoke and mirrors. Most of the money is in the form of operational expenses that they will incur no matter where the stadium is located. They are in reality only contributing $15 million in new money.

I had to laugh when I watched the council meeting this week. It was obvious that the councillors jumping on the bandwagon hadn't really read the specifics of the proposal. They haven't yet thought of the added expenses of building at the East mountain location. The $15 million they are offering won't even cover the cost of the land needed, let alone all the other infrastructure needed to support the stadium at the East mountain location.

I think it's important that we point out the shortcommings of the East Mountain location to the councillors who have been blinded by the dollar amount and have failed to fully analyze the proposal.
