How on EARTH did Bob Young (ONE PERSON) get so much power in this situation?? It's almost an ABSOLUTE power, which by definition is dictatorial. This is a DEMOCRACY! Our City's future seemingly rests in the hands of ONE MAN, who, for all intents and purposes, is a very old-fashioned businessman. This Stadium should be decided by us CITIZENS, and not ONE private business. Pathetic.

Putting the stadium on the East Mountain would be a grave mistake... but the sad thing is... Bob Young will NEVER back down, ever, because if he does he will look pathetic for putting up SUCH a fight and then backing down. It would be a truly sad day for all of Hamilton if this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity was lost, this incredible opportunity to actually brag (and not be ashamed) about Hamilton.

BOB - YOU'RE CURRENT STADIUM IS ALREADY DOWNTOWN! If this is all about parking, we're all damned. Sure there is room to pave over greenbelt land for 6,000 parking spots, but HOW CAN YOU SLEEP AT NIGHT knowing you destroyed so much, just to turn a profit. We've already got massive drainage issues, why add to the mess?

Stadiums in the middle of tarmac and a sea of cars (IF they're each willing to pay $20-$30 to park there) is UGLY, and I for one would be ashamed if that was the view of Hamilton the world got come Pan Am time.
