Ugh. This is exactly the kind of stuff which makes me hate the economics of car culture. Creating a situation where people must drive (or have a friend who does) to take part in these kind of things just makes everything vastly more expensive for everyone.

For this stadium to be successful, people will have to come. Are they going to run charter buses downtown for 20 000 people? Or a light rail line and at what cost? If they go for green "permeable surfaced" parking lots, what will that add to the price?

Downtown sites would work much better because we have a networked street pattern. Overflow can be handled easily, and because there are so many mathematically possible routes in a grid like this, parking and transportaion will undoubtedly be easier, even if everyone does drive.

There are a lot of people in this city without access to cars. Creating a situation where only people with cars can go see a Ti-Cats game is a slap in the face to working class Hamiltonians.
