Exactly, Rene. I'm as keen on city building/ revitalization as anyone, but none of this works without the Ticats. Personally, there is far more validity in the team's last proposal than there is in building an empty stadium on the waterfront.

If there's another viable site downtown, the city owes it to the public to present it. And the Cats owe it to the city and fans to hear it out.

I think we're kidding ourselves if we think 'city building' involves watching another 200 jobs walk out the door and the biggest brand associated with the city move elsewhere. That's counter-productive no matter where the stadium goes.

I believe there's a solution out there that works for the Ticats and the West Harbour. They just may not be as tightly linked as I had hoped.
