I think a lot of people miss the big picture... Especially in light of what this could mean in terms of revitalizing and redefining our city. I live in the Baton and James area. If the stadium goes anywhere but the west habour it will show that Hamilton is truly a city administered by 'dinosaurs' whose mode of thinking is 30-years behind the times.

I'm beginning to think the east mountain site is a red herring; inasmuch that with the continuation of urban sprawl there would be even less of a reason for Metrolinx to recommend and/or follow through for LRT in the city of Hamilton; thus cementing Hamilton's future as a bedroom community of Toronto and its prosperous suburbs to the east, relegating the lower city and downtown core as an outpost for containing the poor, the disenfranchised, the disabled and mentally ill from those communities.

It just may be part of the overall 'McGuinty Plan', sacrificing Hamilton to the betterment of the rest of the Golden Horseshoe, by consolidating the aforementioned population and requisite social services, so 'the beautiful people' living in the rest of the 905 and 416 can continue to blindly pursue a life a chasing the goose that laid the golden egg, contributing to the coffers of the 'tax man' without having to deal with the unpleasantries our societal shortcomings.
