"The problem with residential neighbourhoods such as Ivor Wynne, or Olympic Stadium in Montreal, or the proposed WH, is that in a residential neighbourhood you cannot host music concerts and cultural events much less larger sporting events"

Bob - Have you actually done an in-depth site visit? Who is saying that you won't be able to host music concerns and cultural events on the west harbour? I haven't see or read that anywhere in the discussion. In fact, as I recall, I think music events were part of the business plan for the stadium. You seem to be throwing out these tidbits with no justification. Also, Aquafest was held for years on the West Harbourfront and you can't seriously say the area is totally residential like Ivor Wynne with the significant existing heavy industry/brownfields, including the huge rail yard which can be noisy all hours of the day, the City of Hamilton storage facility on Barton, that the large scrapyard that fronts on Bay.
