WH will be another big fat white elephant. Copps barely breaks even. I'd actually be surprised if it makes money really. I don't see a mass of new development in that are. Theres NOTHING THERE! We had to have Sheila Copps beg borrow and steal to have a new Federal build built across the street! Now we have an empty eyesore near the concrete bunker(sorry City Hall). If a stadium is such a center of redevelopment why has Copps done nothing for it area? Reason One, no real tenant! Ivor Wynne after 80 years has nothing but homes around it! Where are the condo towers? WHere are the hip little shops and bistos? A WH stadium with no tenant will suffer the same fate of slowly decaying costing the taxpayers plenty over the years.

I don't know if I support EM, but I know that land locking a stadium in another predominately residential area a few narrow streets going in only two directions and minimal public transport will prove disasterous.
