Interesting, I would have thought that any stadium below the mountain would be more hazardous to one's health due to the greenhouse effect the escarpment provides thereby trapping the air from the steel factories and other industry below the escarpment causing, potentially, more respiratory problems from soot etc.

And this from a medical journal:

"Hamilton's distinct topography (especially the Niagara Escarpment), downtown industrial core, and prevailing wind direction contribute to a consistent spatial pattern of pollution that has long been known to decrease from the industrial core outwards to the rest of Hamilton [86]."
