I found this interesting :

I just finished sending my comments to the Editor. In it I had this to say :

Other arguments presented by EM supporters seem to be contradictory at
times. In a recent letter to your editor, the "Cats Claws Fan Club"
(excuse me while I cringe a little) the East Mountain site "will make
accessibility more user-friendly than at the restricted confines of
west harbour." however later in the same letter "Football fans from
Brantford, London, Kitchener, St. Catharines, Guelph, Niagara,
Toronto, Buffalo, would come to see the games, but also to dine, shop
and stay -- all positive economic spinoffs." . Wait, so your chief
argument is the "Driveway to Driveway" experiance that those great
freeways give you which if I interpret it correct is basically saying
"get in and out as fast as possible", yet you plan on people sticking
around after to do what, stare at a big parking lot? They won't be
hungry because as you already mentioned in the article "It will also
provide room for the "tailgating" that has become a custom for so many
CFL fans, and is a large part of the game-day experience that many
enjoy."
