I heard Turkstra this morning too. A couple of points:

  1. There is NO piece of land in this city that is designated for a stadium under the official plan, except Ivor Wynne I would assume. So, an OMB hearing could just as easily be launched at any other location.

  2. I'm sure the city's official plan doesn't allow for the city paying hundreds of millions of dollars for a privately owned big box centre.

  3. If residents really knew what was proposed, the majority of the city would support the WH. Nobody will agree with closing down the waterpark at Confederation Park so the Cats can build a big box centre and stadium on 3/4 of the entire Conf Park land.

  4. Finally, we can't make local decision based on threats. If we didn't cave to the Cats threat of leaving, there's no way in heck we should pay an ounce of attention to some guy threatening an OMB lawsuit.
