My concern with building the stadium on the east mountain site is that, once again, it will detract attention from the downtown area. My understanding was that that was the exact reason for placing the stadium on the West Harbour site . . . to attract people downtown where we need the boost. Putting malls and shopping up on the mountain has already caused harm to the downtown core (case in point, Jackson Square and its lack of attracting customers) so putting the stadium up there is just going to put the last nail in the coffin for any hope of bringing business and people to the downtown area and the "real" Hamilton will truly die.
