Seancb, I do think that the Ticats have a cultural role in Hamilton, and I love the fact that they are a part of our identity. If we had to pay admission to the many beautiful parks in the City, to make them financially viable, they would in all likeliness cease to exist. Ditto for conservation areas. But, to be sure, supporting the Ticats shouldn't be at a detrimental cost. And Young's/Mitchell's/Cohon's actions of late are reprehensible. I am willing, if the City is, to call their bluff. Such posturing and bullying is unnecessary, unproductive and anti-community. I'm betting that the Hamilton Ticats will outlive Young's ownership

Mark Alan, there was double the 350 people in attendance yesterday that someone reported to you, and I didn't hear an iota of bashing. I heard passion and vision and common sense.

I'm no expert on Council matters, but I presume that the Mayor has provided feasibility studies and forecasts to Council, or they would be demanding them now. The problem, as I see it, is that the Ticats are making irrational demands based upon an absence of said studies (excluding those of an anecdotal type).
